At the Kentucky Derby, Churchill Downs serves custom-made mint juleps for $1000 apiece… but we’ve made you one for nothing! This Julep has a faint hint of bitter chocolate, which makes it an excellent choice for a summer dessert (or breakfast).
- 3 ounces bourbon
- 1 teaspoon Fee Brothers Aztec chocolate bitters
- 1 ounce mint syrup
- 1 teaspoon water
- 6 mint leaves plus a few tender stems
In the bottom of a lowball glass, muddle syrup and mint springs. Add bourbon, bitters, water, and ice and stir.
