An Intense Julep

Mint & Spice & Everything Nice

Last year at Brooklyn Derby, we offered this ginger twist on the classic julep using Barrow's Intense Ginger Liqueur. We thought you might want to try making some of these for your Derby Day activities as well.

Brooklyn Ginger Julep

Ginger is a fresh, biting, and slightly sweet spice that kicks the flavor of a Mint Julep into high gear. Plus, the Barrow’s Intense removes the need to make simple syrup. What could be easier?



3-4 sprigs of mint
2 oz. bourbon
1 ½ oz. Barrows Intense Ginger Liqueur
½ oz fresh lemon juice


Muddle mint in the bottom of cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice and add remaining ingredients. Shake vigorously and strain into glass with crushed ice. Garnish with sprig of mint.
