- 1 oz. vodka
- 2 oz. baileys
- 2 oz. 2% milk

- Meanwhile, rim a lowball glass with chocolate sauce, and dip immediately in graham cracker crumbs.
- Fill your cocktail shaker with ice, toss in the vodka and bailey’s and shake vigorously (the longer the better. It should be FREEZING cold and well agitated).

Add nuance to a classic mint julep by layering in rhubarb syrup, and topping the drink with a curling twist of rhubarb. And a sprig of mint, of course!
- 2.0 oz Maker’s Mark*
- 1.0 oz Rhubarb Cordial**
- Mint Leaves
- Rhubarb strands (for garnish)
- Water/Club Soda
In a glass add the rhubarb cordial. Fill with ice (preferably crushed but if you don’t have crushed cubes are fine too). Then carefully tilt the glass and fill with a bit of water/club soda. Using a spoon, pour bourbon over top and layer on the top of the drink. Garnish with mint, rhubarb and a straw (so your guests can stir all the ingredients together after being wow’d by the beautiful presentation).
