Jamaican Derby

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!


Equipment: shaker, strainer, muddler, old fashioned glass

1 slice mango

4 mint leaves

1 tsp demerara sugar

¾ oz lemon

2 oz bourbon

Sprig of mint for garnish


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!
