Blanca julep, Bourbon, Alcohol, Cocktail

I’m moving away from fruity cocktails, and playing with a fresh-sour-fizzy one: the blanca julep. Juleps are perfect summer drinks, and so easy to make.

You will need:

  • Highball/mason jar
  • Swizzle stick/spoon


  • 8 mint leaves, plus 3 mint sprigs
  • 20ml fresh lime juice
  • 15ml simple syrup
  • 70ml bourbon
  • 30ml chilled club soda
  • Crushed ice
  • Lime wedge

How to make it:

In your highball or mason jar, muddle the mint leaves with the lime juice and simple syrup. Then add the bourbon and club soda, top up with crushed ice. Give it a quick stir, then garnish with mint and a lime wedge. This cocktail is sharp and smooth all at the same time, with a refreshing fizziness from the soda.
