4 cups bourbon
1 cup honey
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup fresh spearmint
Fresh mint for garnish
Make a simple syrup using 1 cup honey and 1/2 cup water. Add 1/4 cup of fresh spearmint and crush with a muddler or wooden spoon. Allow the syrup and mint to sit overnight in the refrigerator. Remove the mint the next day before mixing with the bourbon. Serve over ice with a sprig of mint in each glass.
Option: Mix with sparkling water for a more “gentle” drink.
Mead (Mead Recipe)
Slice the apricots into small pieces and soak in tequila overnight. Place a few slices of apricot and about a shot of the soaking tequila into a wine glass with homemade mead. Quite tasty and perfect for summer events!
