Southern Twang


Southern Twang

  • 2.0 oz. bourbon
  • 0.5 oz. creme de peche (Mathilde)
  • 0.25 oz. mint tea liqueur (Five Foxes)
  • 0.25 oz. simple syrup
  • 0.25 oz. lemon juice

Shake with ice and dirty pour into glass or jar. Garnish with fresh mint.

I had the mint tea liqueur and wasn’t sure what I could do with it. Starting with a mint julep model with bourbon and peach liqueur for sweetness, I meandered into sour land with the lemon, and then needed some simple syrup to even things out without losing either the mint or peach.

The end result seemed a composite of sweet tea, a mint julep and some Georgia peaches, so the name Southern Twang felt appropriate. Hope ya’ll like it.
