This cocktail originates from a doctor back in 1784 deep in the South West. Bourbon and mint were prescribed as medicine for any stomach sickness. With little alteration it is now the staple drink of the Kentucky Derby, USA!
We’ve used fresh spearmint, a touch a sugar and a heavy dosage of Woodford Reserve Bourbon. Simply served over the crushed ice provided and enjoy!
Garnish is extremely important for this concoction. Slapping the mint against the back of your hand releases oils which will enhance the flavour of the drink at every sip... so slap away!
