Genevieve Julep(?)

Oddly, Genevieve makes a pretty tasty Julep type thing. I mean, you do have to like the flavor of the gin to start with. Also mint goes well with the odd Italian herbal liqueur Strega. As always, I am thinking, why not put these tastes together?

1/2 oz Strega
Sprigs Mint
2 oz Genevieve

In the bottom of a bar glass or julep cup, bruise several sprigs of mint in the strega. Remove sprigs. Add fine ice and Genevieve, churn with spoon to mix, and garnish with fresh mint sprigs. Serve with a straw.

I’d say, add an Absinthe float, but that’s probably gilding the lily or paving the highway to hell.
