Cocktail of the week - PINEAPPLE JULEP

This week I've done a little twist on the classic Mint Julep cocktail. The addition of pineapple juice & vanilla syrup contrasts well with the dry & savoury smokiness of the bourbon for a fresh & appealing drink. Perfect with a burger & chips!

You'll need:

  • 50ml Bourbon
  • Fresh Mint
  • 4 Lime Wedges
  • Vanilla Syrup
  • Pineapple Juice
  • Angostura Bitters

The method:

  1. Throw 4 lime wedges, a small handful of mint, a dash of bitters and a splash of syrup into your shaker then muddle lightly
  2. Fill with ice, add a double shot of bourbon & then shake hard
  3. Pour the whole mixture into a rocks glass (small tumbler) then garnish with a wedge of fresh pineapple & some mint leaves
