Famed opera singer Maria Callas was the inspiration for Fernet Branca’s Menta version - but what if she made it to the Derby? Minty, fresh with a touch of spice and bitterness makes for a more complex and mouth-watering Italian julep.

Maria Goes to the Races

2 oz bourbon

.5 oz Branca Menta

.5 oz lime juice

.5 oz Barolo Chinato

Shake spirits in tin and fill julep glass with the dirty ice, followed by a splash of Chinotto soda. Garnish with a tri-mint-mint sprig.
