Julep:

In honor of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson and his iconic essay "The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved," we at the Bristol, one of his favorite Louisville haunts, proudly present two new variations on the classic mint julep.

The Decadent

2 ounces bourbon

Muddled mint leaves

Cocoa-infused simple syrup

Mint leaves are to be muddled with the simple syrup. Add bourbon and ice, stir lightly, then strain over the rocks. Garnish with sprig of mint.

The Depraved

2 ounces bourbon

Muddled mint leaves

Splash of ruby red Grapefruit juice

Dash of simple syrup

Splash of soda water

Mint leaves are to be muddled with a dash of simple syrup. Add bourbon, ice, and a splash of grapefruit juice. Strain over the rocks and top with a light splash of soda water.
