Blackberry Mint Julep Margarita

2 parts Milagro Anejo

1 part Lime Juice

1 part Honey Syrup

5 Blackberries

6 Mint Leaves

Muddle berries and mint. Add rest, shake and strain over ice in julep glass. Garnish with blackberries and mint sprig.

Tip from Gaston Martinez, Milagro Tequila Ambassador: Substituting the bourbon for Anejo tequila makes sense since we mature this tequila in used bourbon casks. The cask is a huge source of the flavor found in both spirits and will have many similarities. Salud!!!

1 oz. Lillet Rosé

.75 oz. fresh lemon juice

The Tullamore Dewlep

2 oz Tullamore D.E.W. Original

½ oz white vanilla sugar syrup

Dash peach bitters

12 mint leaves

Pour all ingredients into a cup. Gently muddle mint, fill with crushed ice and stir gently to combine garnish with a sprig of mint and straw (Requires use of Julep cup for maximum impact)

Kentucky and Ireland have a great deal in common. They both produce fine fiddlers, fine horses and fine whiskey. And, while musicians trade tunes and breeders trade horses, whiskey aficionados trade recipes – like this Irish twist on a Southern classic. – Tullamore D.E.W National Brand Ambassador, Tim Herlihy


Major Bailey (by Jon Santer)

Hendrick's Major Bailey
Hendrick’s Major Bailey

2 oz Hendrick’s Gin

1 Sugar cube

¼ oz simple

8 Leaves Mint

Muddle in julep glass. Top with crushed ice until a mountain peak of ice forms above the glass. Garnish with copious amounts of mint and a cucumber spear.


Fort Julep (by Joaquin Simo, Pouring Ribbons)

2 oz Lillet Rosé

1/2 oz Green Chartreuse

Glass: Julep (silver or pewter is traditional, but a steel cup will do nicely and a plain ole rocks glass works in a pinch)

Ice: Crushed

Garnish: Mint, lightly spanked before inserting.

Rub 2-3 mint leaves inside of julep cup, then discard leaves. Add Chartreuse & Lillet Rosé, fill midway with crushed ice, swizzle or stir to agitate and incorporate, then add more Crushed Ice. Top with spanked mint sprigs.
