Ginger-Mint Juleps with Fresh Pineappl

Makes 1 cocktail, recipe + pic from the kitchn

8 – 10 mint leaves
2 heaping tablespoons chopped pineapple
2 tablespoons ginger syrup
2 ounces (1/4 cup) Kentucky bourbon, such as Maker’s Mark
3 tablespoons pineapple juice, or more to taste
Mint springs and pineapple wedges, for garnish

Place mint, pineapple, and ginger syrup into the bottom of a cocktail glass or julep cup. Using a muddler or wooden spoon, mash the ingredients to release the flavors. 

Pack finely crushed ice over the fruit mixture, filling the glass all the way to the top. Pour the whiskey over the ice, followed by the pineapple juice and stir gently to combine. Top with more crushed ice to fill the glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint and wedge of pineapple. The drink will be stiff at first but mellows as the ice melts. Add more pineapple you want it sweeter.
