In collaboration with Captain Morgan, celebrity chef Hugh Acheson created a special Derby-day twist on the classic Mint Julep. The Mint Mutiny will be the featured drink at the 2014 Fillies and Stallions Derby Eve party.
Add one cup of hot water to the sufar and stir until the sufar is completely dissolved. Add the rose water, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate the syrup until ready to use.
Fill a julep cup with crushed ice. Stir in the torn mint. Add the Captain Morgan White Rum, lemon juice, rose simple syrup, and then full with club soda until the cup is almost full. Top the cup with a mound of more crushed ice and garnish with a cucumber spear. Rub the mint sprig between your palms to express the natural oil and garnish with the cucumber. Serve with a straw.
