Perfect Kentucky Derby Mint Julep Recipe
(From our very own Eric Foster)
8 to 10 fresh mint leaves
½ ounce Sorghum Syrup
2 ounces Bulleit Rye
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 large mint sprig, for garnish
In a julep cup, muddle mint leaves with sorghum syrup. Fill cup up almost to the top with crushed ice and add rye (or favorite bourbon). Stir until cup starts to frost. Fill the julep cup with more ice and add bitters. Garnish with large fresh mint.
