Very Junipery Julep

That most American of classic drink recipes, the Mint Julep is famous for being served at the Kentucky Derby, and, given its provenance, traditionally features bourbon. But when you swap the whiskey out for gin, you're left with a clean and fresh cocktail that's appropriate for the whole summer.
Taste Refreshing
  • 2 Parts Sipsmith® V.J.O.P.

  • 1 Part simple syrup (or syrup made from equal parts mint tea and sugar)

  • 3-4 mint sprigs

  • This one's best if you use the traditional glassware - i.e. a chilled pewter cup

  • Remove your cup from the freezer and muddle in mint with simple syrup - do so gently to release the oils from the mint, not to grind it to a pulp

  • Fill the cup with crushed ice

  • Add your gin and stir with a bar spoon to blend

  • Garnish with a mint sprig
