After 1 day of infusing, I tried a mint julep with the bourbon infused with pecans.
The julep making is simple:
- 4-5 mint leaves
- 1 teaspoon Maguey Sweet Sap or light molasses
- 2 – 2 1/2 ounces pecan infused bourbon
- Lots of ice
Muddle the leaves in a tall glass, then add the Maguey Sweet Sap. Put a layer or two of cheese cloth over the top of the glass and slowly pour the bourbon and pecans into the glass, keeping the pecan pieces in the cheesecloth. You may be tempted to put this in your mouth… Ok, go ahead if you want! Or just remove the pecan pieces, add a lot of ice and stir well, until the glass gets a layer of condensation on it. Add a small sprig of mint to the top and enjoy!
