Sometimes you just need to have a mint julep, we love sipping this potent cocktail whenever we’re missing the southern charms of Savannah, Georgia.
If you’re like us and can’t make it out to Savannah any time soon, mix up your own Mint Julep at home with this recipe from Elizabeth on 37th, a gorgeous restaurant in one of the town’s historic mansions.

10 stems fresh mint
2 cups simple syrup
2 quart container
To make infused bourbon:
