Cognac makes this one smooth Julep!
According to cocktail lore, the legendary Mint Julep cocktail was first made with Cognac before Kentucky Bourbon edged it out as the spirit of choice.
- 6 -- mint leaves
- 1 teaspoon sugar syrup
- 2 ounces Cognac
- -- Crushed ice
- Place mint leaves in a short tumbler; press with a muddler or the back of a spoon to break up leaves and release the mint’s fragrance.
- Stir in sugar syrup. Fill the glass halfway with crushed ice; add Cognac and stir well to make the glass frosty.
