Triple Crown Pie Julep

Picture of Heather Wibbels, Cocktail Contessa, pouring a cocktailHeather Wibbels
This take on a traditional julep matches flavors of chocolate and pecan with the bourbon and mint. It’s a match made in heaven and choosing the right bourbon with notes of pecan and chocolate elevates the cocktail even more.

Cuisine Bourbon Cocktail


  • 1.5 oz bourbon 100 proof if you have it
  • ¾ oz Rivulet pecan liqueur
  • ¾ oz Chocolate Ballotin whiskey or crème de cacao
  • 3 dashes chocolate bitters
  • Garnish: fresh mint sprig


  • Fill the julep cup with cracked ice. In a mixing glass or cocktail shaker, combine bourbon, pecan liqueur, chocolate liqueur and bitters. Fill with ice and stir until well chilled. Strain into a julep cup filled with cracked ice. Spank the mint sprig on your wrist and slide it into the cocktail. Place the straw right next to,the mint sprig so the mint is close to the nose as you take a sip.
