Recipe type: Cocktail
Serves: 4 oz
- 4 fresh mint leaves
- ¾ oz simple syrup
- Crushed Ice
- ½ oz Original Jalapeno Wine
- 2½ oz. bourbon
- Club Soda
- 1 very thinly sliced jalapeño round
- In a julep cup, pour simple syrup and add mint; gently bruise leaves with a muddler or wooden spoon. Add enough crushed ice to fill two-thirds of the cup. Add bourbon and Original Jalapeno wine and stir gently; then add a bit more crushed ice. Top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with mint sprig and jalapeño.
Slightly spicy, Jalapeño Wine, with a balanced light sweetness. Excellent sipping wine on a quiet evening at home or with friends. Try it as an aperitif before your next meal to stimulate your taste buds and appetite. Add it to your sangria for that something special. It’s uses are limited only by your imagination.
Outstanding cooking addition. Use it to marinate, sauté, slow cook or as a reduction. Incredible with chicken, shrimp, fish or lamb. Try it on all seafood, it adds tremendous flavor without too much kick. Clams are a favorite.
