The Mint Julep
This is a slight variation on the traditional Mint Julep cocktail, using a touch of Fernet Branca Menta to kick up the mint and add a botanical undertone.
  1. “Spank” the mint in the palm of your hand and drop it into a Julep cup
  2. Add all other ingredients and fill the cup halfway with crushed ice
  3. Stir for 10-15 seconds
  4. Fill to the top with crushed ice
  5. Stir for 10 more seconds, or until a frost forms on the outside of the cup
  6. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint
