In the tradition of the Kentucky Derby, we’d like to invite you to sit back, relax and pour yourself a Woodford Reserve mint Julep. What better way to enjoy a classic drink then with a classic bourbon. The Woodfor Reserve is a handcrafted 90.4 proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon. It’s a great balance for a bourbon whiskey with a little complexity and rather smooth.
1 level tsp powdered sugar
2 – 3 fresh mint leaves
2 oz. Woodford Reserve, plus a bit more for muddling
Place powdered sugar in julep cup. Add fresh mint leaves. Wet with a splash of Woodford Reserve and muddle together using wooden muddler (a spoon works well aslo). Fill the cup 2/3 full with crushed ice. Add a straw and mint sprig. Garnish and tamp down ice with muddler. Add 2 oz. of Woodford Reserve, and top off the cocktail with loose crushed ice.
