Bourbon Tarragon Cooler


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.


  • 2 cups Maker’s Mark® Bourbon
  • 1 piece Serrano pepper, cut in half and deseeded
  • 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


  1. *For serrano-infused Maker’s Mark® Bourbon, 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.
  2. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until the ice is pureed.
  3. Serve immediately.
