From the scrappy bush tracks of Acadiana to the storied Fairgrounds Race Track in New Orleans, Louisiana, horse racing traditions run deep. Lucky for us, the advent of racing season happens to coincide with the peak season of our favorite spring crop—Ponchatoula strawberries. So it’s only natural that we enjoy our juleps with perfectly ripe muddled strawberries. Add a splash of HuHu ginger beer (brewed right here in New Orleans) and you have what we like to call a Ponchatoula Perfecta!

Ponchatoula Perfecta
2 oz bourbon
2 medium ripe Ponchatoula strawberries stemmed & halved
½ oz strawberry syrup
2 oz HuHu ginger beer
5 torn mint leaves

Muddle the mint and berries with the syrup in a copper cup. Top with HuHu Ginger Beer. Add crushed ice and stir. Garnish with expressed mint leaf and a paper straw.
