High Stakes Julep

High Stakes Julep with bourbon, apricot preserves, and mint leaves

The High Stakes Julep is a lovely, not-too-sweet julep with a hint of sweetness from apricot preserves (or peach, if you prefer). We’re big fans of jams and preserves used as sweeteners – the pectin adds a wonderful velvety texture to a drink.

Ingredients

Instructions

Gently muddle mint leaves at the bottom of a short glass. Top with remaining ingredients and add some crushed ice to the glass.

Swizzle the drink by twisting a barspoon or swizzle stick between your hands, keeping the head of the tool (heh) from going down far enough to disturb the mint.

Top with more crushed ice and garnish with freshly-slapped mint sprigs.

Great app!

Yes! The latest update has fixed the bugs that annoyed me and added the features I was after. Love the curated list of cocktails! My favorite cocktail app (and I've tried a few).
