Highland Julep

A spirited classic with a vivid flourish of aromatic mint
  • 50ml Glenmorangie Original
  • 12 mint leaves
  • 12.5ml sugar syrup
  • 1 dash aromatic bitters
  • Garnish: large mint sprig

Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass then gently press the mint to extract the essential oils. Fill the mixing glass with cubed ice and stir to chill, dilute slightly and combine the ingredients. Then fill a julep cup with crushed ice, and single strain the liquid from mixing glass into the cup. Stir slightly and top up with crushed ice. To finish, add a large sprig of fresh mint – and a straw cut short to ensure the mint’s scent is appreciated.
