Recipe: The Champ

Recipe Posted on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019

This cocktail is inspired by Champ by artist Zoë Buckman.  While light and airy, this cocktail’s appearance is deceiving– the combination of 100 proof bourbon and fragrant jasmine pack a hefty punch.  In ancient folklore, jasmine is used as a symbol of hope, optimism, and confidence, which are themes throughout our current exhibition, The Future is Female. Stop by to enjoy this drink while browsing the museum or make it at home.




1.5 oz Old Forester Signature 100 Proof Bourbon

1 oz Jasmine Syrup

.5 oz Lillet Blanc

.5 oz Lemon Juice

.25 oz Honey Syrup

2 dashes Dry Curacao/Absinthe Blend

Combine ingredients into a shaker tin and shake with ice.  Fine strain into a coupe and garnish with a dried mandarin wheel.
