Movie week continues and today we bring you the "Bourbon and Chamomile Julep" a nod to the movie, The Help
, set in 1960s Mississippi during the civil rights movement.
Bourbon is an American whiskey and is used in one of The South's most famous cocktails, The Mint Julep. If you loved The Help (or the book it's based on) then put on your best southern accent and retire to the parlour while you watch the Oscar ceremonies unfold this weekend.
The "Bourbon and Chamomile Julep" inspired by the nominated film, The Help
1.5oz chamomile syrup
.25oz green Chartreuse
In shaker tin, place all ingredients, and stir, in separate cup (preferably made of pewter) fill with crushed ice, next strain all components over crushed ice, garnish with a generous portion of fresh mint.
