Kingfly Julep

I used to work at a gin-only distillery, and around Derby time, I had to come up with something that featured gin rather than bourbon. The honey is a nod to the original julep, and I love the way grapefruit and gin play together. This is a lighter, brighter, super refreshing version of a mint julep.



2-4 mint leaves
2 oz Kingfly Gin
¾ oz grapefruit cordial
½ oz grenadine
¼ oz honey syrup
½ oz lime juice


  1. Muddle mint leaves in a shaker tin.
  2. Combine all other ingredients and shake with ice.
  3. Strain into rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish the Kingfly Julep with mint frond and lime wheel.
