If you can get through reading today’s Friday Cocktail Club recipe without humming a certain Harry Style’s hit then I salute you, and the next round is on me.
As summer is upon us the team at American Whiskey thought it was fitting to bring forth a refreshing little number from the makers of Redemption, perfect for gatherings or to be enjoyed out on the deck during those long summer evenings.
As always, enjoy responsibly and tag us in your finished Julep on social media!
