The Lady Julep

Introducing The Lady Julep…

We got our first puppy on May 3rd 2015.


We named her Julep as it was Kentucky Derby Weekend & Allen’s Favorite drink is Bourbon.

We had an event the day before and it became apparent that the traditional Mint Julep (Mint, simple syrup and a heavy pour of bourbon over crushed ice) was only to some people’s liking – to others it was a little strong. So we started coming up with ideas for a lighter version.. enter The Lady Julep!


INGREDIENTS: (Makes one drink)

  • Demerara brown sugar cube
  • Splash of Soda
  • 6 Mint Leaves (+ Sprig for garnish)
  • One Shot Old Forrester Bourbon
  • One Shot Sweet/Sour Lemon Mix
  • One Shot water
  • One Egg White


  1. Place One sugar cube in a rocks glass and add a splash of soda, then muddle.
    • We add soda water instead of tap as it makes it easier to dissolve/muddle the sugar cube.
  2. Add 6 mint leaves and bruise with the muddler.
  3. Add one shot of bourbon, one shot of lemon mix, one shot of water & one whole egg white.
  4. Pour mixture into martini shaker and fill shaker to the top with ice.
  5. Shake Vigorously!! (some bartenders will tell you you should never shake brown liquor, but we won’t tell!)
  6. Fill a rocks glass with ice and add a sprig of mint.
  7. Strain shaker over ice into rocks glass and enjoy!

Note – You can also serve straight up in a martini or coupe glass if preferred!
