The Dark Horse

We were creating a rose sangria with shiso, strawberry, and rhubarb and when I saw the bunch of it behind the bar I remembered that people often refer to Shiso as "Japanese Mint", so that is why we decided to use it in our derby cocktail. Our shiso is purple, which adds to the dramatic color of the cocktail but if you cannot find it, regular mint can work too.
