Bottoms Up – Mad About Mint



5-6 Mint Leaves
¾ oz lime juice
¾ oz simple syrup
2 oz Second Sight White Rum
Club Soda

Muddle mint leaves, lime juice and simple syrup in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add rum and ice and shake for 30 seconds. Strain into a collins glass filled with ice and top with club soda. Garnish with a mint sprig.


Mint Julep

5-6 Mint Leaves
¾ oz simple syrup
2 ½ oz OYO Bourbon

Place mint leaves and simple syrup in the bottom of a tumbler or chilled mint julep glass. Muddle the leaves and then top with crushed ice. Add bourbon and stir. Top off with more ice and garnish with a mint sprig. For a party you can make mint simple syrup by combining one cup of sugar, one cup of water, and half a cup mint leaves. Simmer on the stove top of 20 minutes. Combine one 750ml bottle of bourbon with one cup mint simple and serve over ice with a mint garnish.
