Herbaceous Julep Recipe
Artichoke-based Cynar lends a steady herbaceous hand to this twist on the classic Mint Julep recipe.

1½  oz. Buffalo Trace bourbon
¾ oz. Cynar
½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
½ oz. fresh lemon juice
4 mint leaves
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: Old Fashioned
Garnish: mint sprig

Combine the mint and syrup in shaker and gently muddle the mint until slightly crushed. Add the rest of the ingredients to the shaker. Add ice and shake until chilled. Fine strain into an Old Fashioned glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish.
