Whiskey & Bourbon
Native Dubliner Cathal Armstrong, chef of Restaurant Eve in Alexandria, Virginia, recommends using Red Breast or Paddy Irish whiskey in this pick-me-up.
The clean, summery aroma of basil completely transforms the classic julep, traditionally made with mint. The drink is also traditionally made with Bourbon — here, we replaced that with Irish whiskey, whose subtle citrus notes intermingle beautifully with the sweet herbs.
