Ginger Julep

  • Serves

    makes One Drink


A hit of ginger liqueur takes the traditional Mint Julep and turns it squarely on its ear: spicy, sweet, and modern, with a citrus tang from the wedge of lemon, it's a fresh twist on the old classic.


  • 2 sprigs of mint
  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • 1 oz. Ginger liqueur, like Domaine de Canton
  • ½ oz. lemon juice, from about ½ lemon
  • ½ simple syrup


Step 1

Place mint in the bottom of a cocktail shaker, fill with crushed ice, and muddle with a wooden spoon. After mint is thoroughly bruised, about 10 seconds, add remaining ingredients to the shaker, cover, and shake vigorously. Strain into a julep glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with lemon wedge, or mint.
