Ginger Peach Julep
- 1 1/2oz bourbon
- 1/2oz Mathilde Pêche liqueur
- 1 bar spoon of sweet ginger puree
- 10 sprigs of fresh mint
- Splash of water
Lightly muddle the ginger puree, Pêche liqueur, and mint leaves in a mixing glass. Next, dump in everything else -- the ice, water, and bourbon -- and mix well with that bar spoon. Double-strain over crushed ice in a glass, garnishing with ginger and one large mint sprig.
