Chef Fig’s Jalapeño Mint Julep

Chef Fig’s Jalapeño Mint Julep

A refreshing Derby Day cocktail famously served at ChurchillDowns. I’ve added a little bit of jalapeño heat to the sweet and minty concoction. Cheers
These are best made with crushed ice in a pewter,stainless-steel cup or Moscow mule cup.
