BLACKBERRY MINT JULEP

Don't wait for the Kentucky Derby to try this classic riff

The Mint Julep is just a simple combo of bourbon, sugar, and muddled mint served over crushed ice, it's hard to find a more refreshing summer drink. This riff adds muddled blackberries and honey to amplify bourbon's fruit notes taking the already great Mint Julep to a new level. Think of a fruit cobbler meets Kentucky Mule. It's a perfect start to spring or summer and shows there's no need to wait to try a Mint Julep today.
