Fruit & Mint Julep

Seasonal Fruit & Mint Julep

This is for those who definitely want to taste their whiskey along with everything else. A twist on the official mint julep served at the Kentucky Derby, the fresh fruit makes it delightfully refreshing.

  • 45ml Bourbon or Tennessee
  • 2 slices orange
  • 4 fresh strawberries or 15ml strawberry puree*

Garnish: Mint sprig/fresh seasonal fruit

Method:

  • Muddle sugar in glass to crush

  • Fill glass with crushed ice
  • Pour in the whiskey and stir

  • Garnish with a sprig of mint

*Change fruits seasonally – use semi ripe mango, peaches, plums, pineapple as they come along in place of strawberry
