Classic Mint Julep

Friday, April 11, 2014 0 0

Until the mint in our own garden grows this year, { and boy does it grow! like a weed! } I am resigned to buying mint from the grocery store. It’s always frustrating when your recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of mint and you have to buy a giant bundle from the grocery store! But that frustration soon turns to happiness whenever I dream about the cocktails I can make…

Usually my go-to mint cocktail is a Mojito, but J recently purchased a bottle of bourbon at the duty-free, so I decided to make a Classic Mint Julep instead.

Classic Mint Julep
{ Recipe makes 1 drink. Double if you’d like to share! }

4 mint sprigs { or more if you like it extra minty, like I do! }
2 1/2 oz bourbon
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp water { I added an extra tsp to make mine less strong! }

Muddle mint leaves, sugar, and water in a collins glass. Fill glass with lots of ice. Add bourbon. Top with more ice and add mint sprig.
Enjoy the taste of summertime and lazy patio nights.

Happy weekend everyone!
