Tequila Mint Julep

Comment:

Given the use of tequila, I initially opted for agave syrup over sugar syrup but I found the caramel notes this added somewhat overwhelmed the mint. Instead, perhaps consider using demerara sugar in place of white cane syrup or a mix of the two. To be honest, I found myself preferring the original whiskey-based Mint Julep when tasted against each other but I'd encourage you to give a tequila-based Mint Julep a try, and if you have a better version then please email me at simon@diffordsguide.com.
