How to make:
SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into julep cup half filled with crushed ice. CHURN (stir) the drink with the crushed ice using a bar spoon. Top up the cup with more crushed ice and CHURN again. Repeat this process until the drink fills the cup and serve.
A truly deliciously refreshing cocktail. Woody rancio notes in the cognac are freshened by the mint. Those with a dry palate may want to reduce the sugar a touch.
Although bourbon is now most commonly associated with the Julep it is probable that it was first made with cognac.
