Mint Julep & Recipes
May 7, 2011 by Post Team
Mint Julep & Recipes, Mint juleps are like oil changes, you can do on their own, but it will be difficult. It is much better left to professionals. For that one is not impossible, just requires large quantities of crushed ice (made with a sledgehammer and a bag of Lewis), fresh mint, bonded whiskey (the material under test will not give up), stick swizzle, one pound silver cup and, most importantly, what can not be bought: the ability. Moreover, as one of the most debated ccktails of all time, there are many recipes and techniques of many to choose from. Feel free to play with a few this summers, but on a day when no guest’s thirsty race and party with empty glasses and a shake up takes much longer than once around Churchill Downs.
Many drinks called Derby, but this one, which is in the excellent “vintage spirits and ccktails forgotten” by Ted Haigh, is my favorite. Think of it as a summer in Manhattan cooling and refreshing, but has a bit of it.
1 oz bourbon whiskey
½ ounce sweet vermouth
½ ounce orange curacao
¾ ounce fresh limejuice
Shake liquids with ice and strain into a ccktail glass. Garnish with a mint leaf and a slice of lemon (optional).
This drink is originally from “The Savoy C**ktail Book”, but most use the version set out below, which is located in Gary Regan’s “Joy of Mixology.” The taste of sweet almond amaretto combines well with the acidity of lemon juice, while the gin gives the drink a dry taste.
2 oz gin
¾ oz amaretto
¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
1 dash Angostura bitters
Shake all ingredients and strain into a ccktail glass.
