Yazoo Street Scandal

Yazoo Street Scandal with mint, bourbon, black tea, hibiscus syrup, lemon juice, ginger syrup, and Angostura bitters

Hibiscus syrup is one of our favorite ways to bring a bright, fresh tartness into a drink – and the Yazoo Street Scandal from Damon Boelte at Grand Army in NYC is a great way to show it off.

It’s something like a cross between a sweet tea and a mint julep, and it’s perfect for brunch or day-drinking thanks to its smaller-than-usual share of bourbon. If you’d like to make it even lower-proof, you can reduce the share of bourbon, or top with more black tea.

Ingredients

Instructions

Place the mint in the bottom of a tall glass, and muddle gently to release the oils. Add all remaining ingredients (except the bitters). Fill the glass halfway with crushed ice, and use a swizzle stick or a barspoon to swizzle to drink just above the mint leaves. Add more crushed ice to fill the glass, then top with the bitters. Garnish with a freshly-slapped sprig or mint and a lemon wheel.

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
