Mint Julep


A julep is simply a mixed drink sweetened with syrup – but the mere word conjures up images of ante-bellum cotton plantations and a long-gone, leisurely and gracious way of life.


Fresh mint leaves

1 tbsp sugar syrup

6-8 cracked ice cubes

3 measures bourbon whiskey

Fresh mint sprig, to decorate


1. Put the mint leaves and sugar syrup into a small, chilled glass and mash with a teaspoon. Add crushed ice to fill the tumbler, and then add the bourbon.

2. Decorate with mint sprig.
