Virginia Mint Julep Recipe


Ingredients:

  • Crushed ice
  • 1 tsp Sugar syrup
  • 75 ml Bourbon Whisky
  • 9 Mint sprigs, plus extra to decorate

Method:

  1. Put the mint sprigs in an iced silver mug or tall glass.
  2. Add the sugar syrup, then crush the mint into the syrup with a long teaspoon.
  3. Fill the mug or glass with crushed ice, pour the bourbon over the ice and stir gently.
  4. Pack in more crushed ice and stir until a frost forms.
  5. Wrap the mug or glass in a table napkin and serve decorated with a mint sprig.


Tip: Always use smaller sized ice cubes when making a cocktail. This creates a smoother taste by allowing a proper mix of water and alcohol, since they melt faster when the alcohol is poured over them.
