Mint Julep

The cocktail is a bourbon lover’s dream: ice, sugar, fresh mint, and lots of whiskey.


  • 3 oz. bourbon
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Cracked ice


In a Julep cup or large Old-Fashioned glass, gently muddle 5-6 mint leaves with the sugar. Add ice almost to the top of the glass, then pour bourbon over the ice and stir vigorously until the mixture is chilled and the glass frosted. Mound more ice on top and garnish with a mint sprig.
