Many of you have tried our inexplicably alluring Cre, but have you tried it in a bourbon cocktail? We think this riff on the classic Mint Julep is the perfect way to enjoy this bright green beauty.
Here’s what you need:
1 sugar cube
5 mint leaves, plus more for garnish
1/2 oz Cre
2 oz bourbon
Add a sugar cube and mint leaves to a mixing glass.
Measure 3/4 oz Cre.
Add to glass.
Muddle by gently pressing and twisting to dissolve the sugar and release the oils of the mint.
Measure 2 oz bourbon.
Add to glass. Stir.
Strain over crushed ice.
Add extra crushed ice on top and garnish with mint.
