Prescription Julep

There are countless rifts on Julep recipes, bu this adapted version is a favorite of cocktail historian David Wondrich, who calls it “the tastiest Mint Julep recipe” he knows. You taste the subtle spice from rye whisky and a blast of chilled smooth Cognac, rounded with aromatic orange bitters. It’s sharp, cold and elegant – everything a cocktail should be.


  • 1 1/2 oz Cognac
  • 1/2 oz Rye Whiskey
  • 8 mint leaves
  • 1/4 oz Honey Syrup (1:1 honey and water mix)
  • 1/4 oz Simple Syrup
  • Garnish: Mint Sprig


Add the simple syrup to a cocktail shaker. Add the mint. Muddle it – not enough to tear the leaves, just enough to get everything mixed up and the oils released from the mint leaves. Add the spirits and stir. Strain into a julep cup and top with crushed ice. Garnish with a short straw and a fat mint sprig.
