This Northeast Kingdom-inspired julep features some of Vermont's finest bourbon, our sweet and smoky Campfire Syrup in place of the traditional simple syrup, and a hint of mint. The drink starts with cool and bracing smell and taste, then transitions into the warmth of the bourbon and syrup. It's just like coming in out of the snow to sit by the fire.
