I could have sipped this mint julep all day. I believe that the VP of Public Relations, George M. Rudenauer, told me that Cognac was the liquor originally used to make mint juleps…I didn’t care, from now on this was the way I wanted mine made. Refreshing before or after a meal, or dang it to heck, all by its lonesome, it was that good.

8 sprigs mint
1/2 oz. of simple syrup
