With this evolution on the Mint Julep we've taken it a step further and used a straight Rye whiskey giving this Julep a bit more of a fiesty bite than the original would have with a traditonal straight Bourbon.
Want to make it for yourself? You'll need the following:
- 50ml Michter's Rye
- spoonfull of sugar
- handful of mint leaves
- crushed ice
- 1 mint sprig
Muddle the mint and sugar in a Julep cup, pour in the crushed ice and then finish off with the Michter's Rye before giving a slight stir then finishing off with a mint sprig to garnish.
