There is nothing more refreshing than the classic Southern style of a Mint Julep. Known as the signature drink for the Kentucky Derby, it is a simple yet wonderful mix of muddled Mint, Sugar Syrup, crushed ice, and a good dose or two of Bourbon.
In a Julep cup lightly muddle the Mint and Simple Syrup. Add the Bourbon and pack tightly with crushed ice. Stir until the cup is frosted on the outside. Top with more crushed ice to form an ice dome
First created in the southern United States during the 18th century
