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.
Garnish: fresh mint sprigs for each cocktail. In a pitcher or empty bourbon bottle, combine all ingredients except the mint. Shake the bottle briefly (or stir the pitcher) to combine and place in the fridge until well-chilled. Add more chocolate bitters as needed to taste. To serve pour into julep cups filled with cracked ice and garnish each cocktail with a freshly spanked mint sprig just next to the straw.
