Hard Water Mint Julep

For his Mint Julep, Erik Adkins saves the bourbon for last, drizzling it over the top of a bed of crushed ice.


2 oz. bourbon

1/3 oz. gomme syrup (or 2:1 simple syrup)

6 mint leaves

Tools: muddler

Glass: Julep

Garnish: 3 fresh mint sprigs


In the bottom of a Julep cup, gently press the mint leaves with the muddler to extract the oils. Fill the cup with crushed ice and insert a straw. Slap the mint leaves for garnish between your palms and place next to straw. Drizzle the bourbon on top, wait for the cup to frost, then serve.
