Mint Julep


Mint Julep is a cocktail mostly associated with Kentucky Derby but it’s a drink for all summer long whether you are hanging out at home or by the pool.  This classic bourbon cocktail is served on the rocks and has that sweet and spirit forward flavor. 






  • 2 ounces of bourbon
  • 8 mint leaves
  • 1/2 ounce of raw sugar syrup – 1 part water and one part raw sugar

How to make Mint Julep cocktail:

Muddle the mints and syrup in a glass.  Pour the bourbon and pack it with crushed ice.  Stir well till outside of the glass is frosted.  You should add more crush ice and garnish it with mint.  There are some mixologists that add couple of bitters as well but it’s optional.
