In preparation for my trip to the Kentucky Derby, I’ve been searching the InterGoogles for a great mint julep recipe to adapt to include my special mint-infused bourbon that’s been steeping on my back porch for two weeks now (see the post here).
-Minted simple syrup
-Mint sprigs, for garnish
My question is, will adding mint simple syrup to mint-infused booze be too much mint? Or is there no such thing as too much mint? Perhaps I should scale back on the mint in the simple syrup and let the herb infusion in the booze do most of the talking? What do you think? Are there any mixologists out there?
