2 oz Apple brandy, Carolina House
1 oz Rye, Templeton Rye
1⁄2 oz Demerara syrup (2:1)
10 Mint (leaves)

In a julep cup lightly muddle the mint and syrup to release the oils. Top with crushed ice and pour over brandy and rye. Stir until cup frosts. Top with more crushed ice. Garnish with a 'slapped' sprig of mint.

  • Used Laird's Applejack (1.25 oz) and Sazerac rye (1.25). Also 13 mint leaves. Great drink. Rate 5.0
  • Would like to try this and a version subbing peach brandy.

These (along with Wondrich's Prescription Julep) were HUGE hits and the Derby part last weekend.
