Decca will be offering two specialty juleps during Mint Julep Month. First, a Julep in the Afternoon, by Davy Butterworth, starts by soaking 4-6 mint leaves in absinthe, then lighting this on fire. Muddle after flames die out. Next, add .5 ounces of mint syrup and 2 ounces of brandy, then stir with ice. Dirty dump into an absinthe-rinsed glass. Finally, garnish with a flaming mint sprig.
Next, the Waysider, aka The Wayside Julep, is Decca's signature cocktail and a nod to the mint julep. This well balanced and not-too-sweet cocktail starts with fresh local mint and freshly squeezed lime juice muddled with organic cane sugar simple syrup. Served stirred over ice with a good strong bourbon and topped off with spicy ginger beer, the Waysider goes down easy with just the right kick to remind you that you are in Bourbon Country.
