The only thing that could be better than a classic mint julep recipe is this recipe for a Cherry-Mint Julep. This recipe puts a delicious twist on the traditional Derby Day cocktail. A combination of cherry-flavored bourbon and mint simple syrup makes this an extraordinarily refreshing cocktail. You can make cherry bourbon yourself by allowing dry cherries to steep in a jar of bourbon for about a week. Once you taste this drink, you will agree that it is well worth the wait.
