One Mint JulepMADE BY ANA GASTEYER
You can bet on our indie version of the classic Kentucky Derby cocktail.
The secret? Add maple syrup and use a spicy rye whiskey, rather than the usual bourbon.
Try One Mint Julep for yourself. Bottoms up!
One Mint Julep
For the mint syrup
½ cup water
½ cup sugar
3-4 sprigs mint
1. Make the mint syrup: In a saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Cook until sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, add mint sprigs and let steep 15 minutes. Strain and refrigerate until ready to use.
2. To make the cocktail, add rye, maple syrup and mint syrup to a chilled highball filled with crushed ice. Stir until blended and well chilled.
3. Top with more crushed ice, and garnish with mint sprig and candied orange peel.
