Mint Julep


  • Author: Mike
  • Yield: 1 glass 1x

Description

Bourbon, mint and simple syrup.  It’s a simple drink that is a must have on Kentucky Derby day or when lounging on a summer day!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 3 fresh mint leaves
  • crushed leaves

Instructions

Add mint leaves and simple syrup in whiskey glass or mint julep cup and muddle with a cocktail muddler.  Fill glass with crushed ice.  Pour bourbon over top.  Stir with a cocktail stirrer and enjoy!


Notes

Use a bourbon that you would drink straight.  I enjoy Maker’s Mark with this.
