As with all juleps, the mint needs crushing or mudding first to help release its flavor into the sugar and water. Simply chopping it won’t produce enough flavors.
1 sugar lump
3 sprigs fresh mint
1 measure jack Daniels
1. In a small glass, crush the sugar and mint together with a little of the whiskey.
2. When the sugar has dissolved, strain it into a chilled flute with the rest of the whiskey and then top up with champagne.
