I love mint juleps. I love the tradition behind them, I love the glasses. Most of all I love the taste. This is a tropical twist on the classic drink of the Kentucky Derby and I’m extremely excited to share this. Enjoy everyone!

In shaker tin, muddle mango, mint and sugar gently until juice is expelled. Add lemon and bourbon and top with ice. Shake for 15-20 seconds and strain into old fashioned glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint. Cheers!
