MINT JULEP – The Official Drink of the Kentucky Derby

julep

INGREDIENTS

2 oz Makers Mark Bourbon
6 sprigs of fresh mint
2 tsp super fine sugar (or try Brown Sugar)

DIRECTIONS

Place sprigs of mint in glass with the sugar and muddle gently. Fill half way with crushed ice, then add the bourbon. Don’t stir. Fill the glass the rest of the way with crushed ice. Stick it in the freezer until the glass frosts—this should take roughly five minutes.

Garnish with more mint sprigs and a straw.

Traditionally, a silver julep cup is used but a Collins or Highball glass can work as well.
