Bourbon-Peach Julep

julep4

This is about as sweet, summery, and Southern as they come. In addition to this Southern inspired cocktail, I will be making Fried Chicken, Homeroom’s Classic Mac, and lime bars with graham cracker-coconut crust. That is how David and I are celebrating the 4th (along with some sparklers to wave around in the back yard) and I can hardly wait. Recipes for the crispy fried chicken, mac & cheese, and lime bars coming soon! Have a fun 4th of July!!

from: 101 Mojitos
serves: 1

4 or 5 mint leaves, plus sprig for garnish
1/4 cup fresh peach chunks, plus slice for garnish (1/4 cup = about half of a small peach)

In a rocks glass or julep cup, muddle the mint leaves with the peach chunks and simple syrup. Add the bourbon and peach liqueur. Top with crushed iced and stir for a good minute (add more crushed ice, as needed). Garnish with a mint sprig.
