This simple julep variation tastes rich, smoky, and sweet. Settle in to a big leather chair, light a stogie, and watch the ponies run.
Old Money (makes 1 drink)
- 1 1/2 oz cognac (it doesn't need to be Louis XIII but you should use a decent bottle)
- 1/2 oz Red & Brown Campfire Syrup™
In a mixing glass or pint glass with ice add the cognac and syrup. Stir for 30 turns to incorporate the ingredients.
Strain the drink into a julep cup filled with crushed ice. Top with more crushed ice if necessary and garnish with a mint sprig. Serve with a straw.
