Southern Comfort with a Twist: Good Food on Montford’s House-smoked Mint Julep

Smoked Mint Julep
Smoked Mint Julep

This beverage is so simple that you should be able to recreate it at home, but the good folk at Good Food smoke this glass themselves, and that’s hard to execute perfectly. We encourage you to try, regardless — good things come to those who try. Many of the best new cocktail inventions are born of the simplest mistakes, after all.

INGREDIENTS:
2 oz. House-smoked Bulleit bourbon
1/2 tbsp. powdered sugar
4 leaves fresh mint

METHOD:
Mix bourbon with ice and mint leaves. Garnish with more mint leaves and powdered sugar.
