Perfect Gentleman

The Perfect Gentleman hails from NYC’s Pergola, where it was created by bartender Scott Fitzgerald. It’s a twist on the classic Mint Julep, combining bourbon with cucumber-rose dry vermouth, sweet vermouth and some mint simple syrup. If you’re looking for julep alternatives on race day without straying too far outside the bourbon-mint zone, this recipe should do the trick.
