Brandy Julep

Another good end to a good bottle this week: Kuchan Indian Blood Peach eau-de-vie. I was planning to use only cognac for this julep, but remembered had about an ounce left of the peach just sort of sitting around so I gave half an ounce each to two drinks. I guess that makes it marginally a Georgia Julep. (David Wondrich and Doctor Cocktail both give the original proportions for the Georgia as half of each.)

Brandy Julep
  • 2 1/2 oz cognac
  • 1/2 oz peach eau-de-vie
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 6 mint leaves
Break mint leaves and drop them in a julep cup or double rocks glass. Muddle lightly with a little of the syrup. Add remaining ingredients and crushed ice to fill and swizzle. Garnish with plenty of mint.
