Pop Culture

The Cocktail: Maker’s Mark Mojito

The Reason: With Cinco de Mayo just past and the Preakness Stakes fast approaching, why not combine the best of each event for a classic warm weather cocktail? We’re in!

The Ingredients:

  • 2 parts Maker’s Mark
  • 1 part lime juice
  • About 20 (or more) fresh mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • Triple Sec Liqueur
  • Fresh lime wedge

How to Make It:

  • Combine the sugar, lime juice, half of the mint leaves, and a splash of triple sec in a glass
  • Muddle until the sugar dissolves
  • Add the desired amount of ice or crushed ice and lightly rub the remaining mint leaves before adding to the glass so as to release the oils from the herb
  • Top with bourbon, soda, or sparkling water, and top with the fresh lime. Cheers, or salud!
