Tropical Rum Mint Julep

Makes 1 drink

Take your julep to the tropics with this fruity, herby rum-based take on the classic.

Tropical Rum Mint Julep
INGREDIENTS
  • 7-8  Fresh Mint Leaves
  • 1/2oz Gum Syrup (or 2/1 Sugar/Water Simple Syrup)
  • Two 1” cubes Fresh Pineapple
  • 1/4oz Guava Juice
  • 1/4oz Lime
  • 1 3/4oz Silver Rum (we used Bacardi)
  • Garnish:
  • 3 Pineapple Leaves, 1 sprig Fresh Mint, 2 Raspberries, Scrappy’s Orleans Bitters (or other Cinnamon Bitters)

DIRECTIONS

1

Combine the mint leaves, 1/4oz of the syrup, cubes of pineapple, lime juice & guava juice in the bottom of a julep tin. Muddle to bruise the mint & crush the pineapple.
2

Add a layer of crushed ice, then the rum.
3

Add another layer of crushed ice, up to the top of the tin. Pour in the remaining 1/4oz of syrup.
4

Mound additional crushed ice over the top of the tin. Insert a straw or spoon-straw (ideally metal).
5

Insert the pineapple leaves and mint sprig into the ice. Add the raspberries. Dash enough of the bitters on the ice to color it.
