Mint Julep

Mint Julep
5 from 1 ratings
All you need to make a perfect mint julep is four ingredients: a good quality bourbon, simple syrup, fresh mint and some crushed ice. It absolutely must be crushed ice. The drink may taste strong and sweet at first, but after only a few minutes, the ice will dilute and soften the drink and it will transform into a sublime and ambrosial mix that will be about as refreshing (and Southern) as you’ll find at any restaurant or bar.
