My Favorite Mint Julep Recipe

Ingredients

  • Crushed ice
  • 2 tablespoons mint simple syrup (see below)
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • Fresh mint
  • Powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Chill julep cup or glass in the freezer. Fill the glass halfway with shaved or crushed ice and add 2 tablespoons of mint syrup and 2 ounces of bourbon. Stir rapidly with a spoon to frost the outside of the cup. Insert a sprig of mint and add more crushed on top, filing the cup. Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top. Insert a straw cut to 1 inch above the top of the cup.

Simple Syrup Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 bunch fresh mint (about 1 cup, packed), preferably spearmint

Instructions

  1. Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan. Place over high heat and bring to a boil, stirring the mixture to dissolve the sugar. Boil 5 minutes.
