Coffee Julep

Just when we thought iced coffee couldn’t get any more refreshing, the crew at Toby’s Estate in Brooklyn upped the cool factor with a dose of summery basil-mint syrup.

 

2 shots espresso, cooled (or 4 oz. strong-brewed coffee)
1 1/2 oz. basil-mint simple syrup (see below)
4 oz. whole milk
Tools: barspoon
Glass: double rocks
Garnish: fresh mint sprig and a few spoonfuls of milk foam, if available

 

Pour espresso (or coffee, if using) into an ice-filled glass. Add syrup and milk, stir to combine, and garnish.

 

Basil-Mint Simple Syrup: In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup water with 1/4 cup each torn fresh basil and fresh mint leaves. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolved. Remove from heat, let cool to room temperature and strain into a clean glass jar. Keep refrigerated and use within 1 week.
