Author Notes

Make these instead of (or alongside) Juleps for the Derby, and then make them every warm weekend thereafter. Enlist a friend to help you bash ice, or, for a larger crowd, we like to crush ice in a blender. —Kenzi Wilbur

What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 ounces Bulleit bourbon
  • 1 heaping barspoon peach jam
  • 1 barspoon honey
  • 1 fat lemon wedge
  • 4 to 6 mint leaves
  1. Muddle the herbs and lemon wedge, then add the jam, honey, and spirit and stir.
  2. Add ice and shake hard for 5 to 10 seconds, depending on the size of your ice. Strain into a rocks glass over crushed ice. Garnish with more mint.

This is a fantastic cocktail! I used Japanese whisky figuring that the delicate fragrance would pair well with mint, lemon, and peach. Plus, it was what I had on hand.

Made several of these over the last week and I gotta say they are really fantastic. Thanks for the recipe.

I hope this isn't part of that trend where we forget that bourbon is a grown-up drink consider all alterations to be improvements. Sigh.
