The Mint Julip
-Fill a glass or ideally a Mint Julep cup full of crushed ice
-Add 2 tablespoons of homemade mint simple syrup
(Boil equal parts sugar & water, remove from heat and gently muddle mint leaves, let cool.)
-Add 2 1/2 ounces of your favorite Kentucky bourbon (we like Jim Beam's Devil's Cut for a reasonably-priced choice)
Garnish with a mint sprig or two & enjoy!
Don't forget Sunday is Cinco de Mayo – another Chic & Awe favorite holiday! It's the perfect excuse to try our Margarita or Tequila Sunrise recipes!
