Snapshot 2: Dad and Acqua di Cuba

Today, I find myself thinking about Mint Juleps, especially the ones I made for my father. First I would prepare the simple syrup, then muddle the mint and add it to the syrup to create an infusion. Let it sit a bit. Pour the bourbon over crushed ice and slowly add the minty sweet syrup. With glass in hand, I would then hand my Dad a sprig of mint and he would neatly place it behind his ear, as his Father did. From a distance, sipping his drink he looked completely Roman.

 

I’m looking forward to Santa Maria Novella, Acqua di Cuba with its boozy quality.
