1 1/2 oz. Cognac
1/2 oz. Rye Whiskey
1/2 oz. sugar + 1 oz. warm water
8-12 Leaves of fresh Spearmint

In a glass or julep cup, mix the sugar and water or add the simple syrup. Gently muddle the mint leaves with the sugar syrup—do not break them up or mash them into bits. You just want to bruise them. Add the whiskey and cognac and stir to combine. Fill the glass with crushed ice and stir again, until the glass begins to frost. Top off the glass with crushed ice to fill, garnish with fresh mint and serve with a straw.
The real name of this drink is "Prescription Julep." It is known for a cure all for those pesky viruses. I thought it looked like a good drink to help fight the cold winter blues!


  1. I have yet to try a recipe of yours that I did not love. Your icebox cake is solely responsible for me not fitting into a bathing suit and your beef bourginon (did I spell that right...don't think so:-) Anyway, it was so yummy!
    Because of your amazing track record, I just have to try "sloshed" on a cool rainy day. Cheers!

  2. Cookies and now cocktails?
    Now I really know why I like you :)

  3. Soul sister - you are a woman after my own heart!! xoxo.

  4. I've got to try this...solely for medicinal purposes;-)


  5. Sloshed - that's how I like to spend my time :) Looks wonderful!
