Our favorite Mint Julep recipe is pretty simple. With just four ingredients, it’s easy to remember and let’s your favorite bourbon shine. Cheers.
1/2 oz. superfine sugar
1 oz. hot water
8 mint leaves, plus one mint sprig
2 oz. your favorite bourbon
1. Dissolve the sugar in the hot water in a julep cup or old fashioned glass
2. Add mint leaves and gently press them with a spoon to squeeze the oils out
3. Add bourbon
4. Fill glass with cracked ice
5. Stir and serve with a mint sprig and straw
Bonus tip: If you live near a Sonic, you can purchase a bag of their “nugget ice” for an even more authentic Mint Julep.
