Pirate's Julep

Save this one for Talk Like A Pirate Day (September 19)! This is pretty much a mint julep with rum, but before you write it off as same-ole, same-ole, you should try it. Orgeat and triple sec make a big difference in the flavor. It is much more fruity than a bourbon julep and fitting for poolside drinking, whereas the other one is probably good for barbecues.

I love this photo, by the way. It makes me think of the land of El Dorado, where the streets run with gold rum. I think that's how the legend goes.
  •  3 oz. gold rum
  • 1 tsp. Curacao
  • 1 tsp. orgeat syrup
  • 10 mint leaves
  • fresh mint sprig
Muddle mint leaves in orgeat syrup in the bottom of a shaker. Add ice, rum and Curacao and shake. Pour into a julep glass if you have one, or a highball will do. Garnish with a mint sprig.
