Mint Julep Cocktail Recipe
Traditionally served in a glass or silver Julep cup over ice, and garnished mint. We recommend using a high quality bourbon due to this cocktail only having a single liquid.
Known as the signature drink of the Kentucky Derby, However here in Australia we will be enjoying these ahead of the Melbourne Cup, and on race day of course.
Pull up a glass, lightly muddle the mint and syrup.
Add the bourbon and pack tightly with crushed ice.
Stir until the cup is frosted on the outside.
