Serving up an Aperitivo Julep made with Cocchi Americano, Jack Daniel's Honey with fresh mint, lemon and a bucket of crushed ice!
- Difficulty: Intermediate
In a Julep Tin, fill with 1 handful of mint (stems removed) lightly pressed.
Fill with Cocchi Americano, Jack Honey, Preferred Syrup flavour, Freshly squeezed lemon juice
Add Crushed Ice and give this a stir before garnishing with remaining mint sprigs
If it doesn't have a bouquet of Mint on top, and if you're not using crushed ice, you're doing a Julep wrong! Don't skimp out on these important details as they will change the cocktail for you. For suggestions on syrup flavours, I would try a Raspberry Syrup, Strawberry Blackpepper Reduction, Hibiscus Rose Syrup or Pistachio Lemon Syrup. The skies the limit here. At the event I mixed with a Ginger Syrup or Strawberry Rhubarb. See where your creative mind takes you and let me know what you whip up in the comments below!
