this is my favorite drink of all time. i made this recipe off the top of my head for a customer that wanted something with bourbon that he had never had before. the drink itself is so easy, but the prep of the ginger base is quite a process. love it
1ginger base-depending on the size of the batch you wish to have, use more or less ginger.
put ginger, simple syrup to taste and lemon juice to taste(be modest u can add more later)
blend on high until thin as possible
strain over mesh using tool to quicken the process
add simple syrup and lemon to taste
1mix bourbon, ginger, dash of simple, squeezed lemon, and little bit of ice
Despite what some might tell you, a Mint Julep is not a Mojito made with bourbon. It’s also definitely not a Mojito made with bourbon, sour mix, Rose’s lime juice and Sprite. Like most great cocktails, the Mint Julep is painfully easy to make - and just as easy to screw up. Hopefully this recipe will steer you in the right direction.
