Mint Julep Drink

Mint Julep Drink Recipe

I can just see those Southern ladies back in the day, sitting on the front porch in all those long dresses and hoops, sipping this cooling Mint Julep drink in the hot summer and fanning themselves!


4 oz. Kentucky Bourbon
2 tsp. granulated sugar
4 to 6 mint leaves


Place the mint leaves at the bottom of a shaker and pour 2 tsp. sugar over the leaves. Take a pestle and grind the mint leaves into the sugar. Add the bourbon, the ice and shake it.

After shaking pour the mixture in a straight glass full of ice. Garnish with mint leaves.
