Mint Juleps

CK’s official bartender-turned-educator is back! Nick mixes up a mean mint julep, just in time for the Derby this weekend. We’ll be serving these by the pitcher this weekend, but a handcrafted one is pretty hard to pass up. Cheers!

Fresh mint
1 tablespoon simple syrup
4 tablespoons bourbon
Crushed ice

Add a few mint leaves to the bottom of the glass, then pour in simple syrup and muddle. You’re not trying to pulverize the mint, just intimidate it into releasing its scent and delicious flavor.

Fill remainder of glass with crushed ice, then pour in bourbon. Stir to mix ingredients and chill bourbon until the outside of the glass is frosty. You can also place the drink in the freezer for a few minutes to really chill it.



Garnish with more mint, put on your floppy hat, and enjoy!
