Easy Strawberry-Bourbon Cocktail

Sister to the Mint Julep: A Strawberry-Bourbon Cobbler

One of my favorite cocktails of all time is a Kiwi Cobbler from Food & Wine magazine. The combination of muddled fruit, mint, and vanilla bean scream warm weather and lazy weekends outside. That's why I sought to create a riff on the cocktail for the Kentucky Derby using in-season strawberries and bourbon. The flavors meld effortlessly. Thanks to the vanilla bean and strawberries, there's no need to go overboard on the sugar. Think of this as a less-sweet, fruity mint julep. Cheers!
