Mint Julep Day

It’s Mint Julep Day!

Let’s celebrate the last Saturday of the month with a Bourbon and Mint cocktail.

The mint julep is a mixed alcoholic drink, or cocktail, consisting primarily of bourbon, sugar, water, crushed or shaved ice, and fresh mint. The Mint Julep is traditionally served in a Highball glass or silver Julep cup over crushed ice and garnished with mint. Since bourbon is the only liquid in the drink, you’ll want to use a high-quality bourbon you know you love.

 

INGREDIENTS:

For the garnish

  • a big mint sprig and a straw

METHOD:

Shake the bourbon, mint leaves and sugar syrup with ice and strain into a highball glass or julep tin filled with crushed ice. Churn gently with a long-handled spoon and top with more crushed ice. Garnish and serve.
