Napoleon Julep

Presented by Liquor.com and Hennessy VSOP Privilège

Who needs Bourbon when you have Hennessy VSOP Privilège? Watch Porchlight’s Nicholas Bennett make his unique take on the Julep.


  • 2 oz Hennessy VSOP cognac
  • .5 oz St-Germain
  • .25 oz Green tea syrup*
  • 2 dashes Bittermens Xocolatl Mole bitters

Glass: Julep tin or double Old Fashioned
Garnish: Mint sprig, lemon zest

Add all of the ingredients to a Julep cup or double Old Fashioned glass. Fill halfway with crushed or pebble ice, then swizzle to chill. Pack the glass with more ice, forming a mound at the top. Garnish with the mint and finely grated lemon zest over the surface of the drink.

*Green tea syrup: In a saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add 4 green tea bags, and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, discard the tea bags, and stir in 2 cups of sugar until it dissolves. Let the syrup cool; it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
