A citrusy, tart, and slightly sweet bourbon cocktail that will remind you of fresh lemonade. Thanks to the mint and ginger beer, this cocktail takes on a new level of complex flavor.


  • 1 1/4 ounces bourbon
  • 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 23 fresh mint leaves, gently muddled
  • 2 dashes Fee Brothers rhubarb bitters
  • Splash ginger beer or soda water


  1. Gently muddle the simple syrup and mint leaves in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients except the ginger beer. Fill with ice and shake.
  3. Double strain into a chilled coupe glass. Top with a splash of ginger beer for a little fizz.


You can use ginger beer or soda water to add a splash of bubbles. Whichever you have on hand or prefer!
