Bourbon Tarragon Cooler
by Elad Zvi, Co-Founder, Bar-Lab
- 2 parts Serrano-infused Maker’s Mark® Bourbon*
- 1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 part agave syrup
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup ice
- 4 sprigs tarragon
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until the ice is pureed. Serve immediately.
*Serrano-infused Maker’s Mark® Bourbon
- 2 cups Maker’s Mark® Bourbon
- 1 piece Serrano pepper, cut in half and deseeded
Combine the pepper and Maker’s Mark® Bourbon in an airtight container and allow it to macerate for at least 2 days. Store in the fridge and shake container gently twice a day.
This refreshing and slightly spicy take on a mint julep is truly original but still approachable and easy to make. The Maker’s Mark® Bourbon works surprisingly well with both the heat of the Serrano and the sweeter tones of the tarragon.
