Here are six unique ways you can enjoy mint juleps! Let’s get this party started!

 

Ingredients

  • mint
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 ounces whiskey — bourbon
  • old-fashioned glass

 

Directions

Place 5 or 6 leaves of mint in the bottom of a pre-chilled, dry 12-ounce glass or silver beaker.

Add sugar and crush with a muddler. Pack glass with finely cracked ice. Pour a generous 3 ounces of Kentucky bourbon over the ice. Stir briskly until the glass is frosty. Add more ice and stir again before serving. Stick a few sprigs of mint into the ice.

If you want more of a mint flavor, lightly cover about 10 sprigs of mint with superfine sugar, add an ounce of spring water, macerate, let stand for 10-15 minutes, and strain through a fine sieve into the ice-filled glass.

Next, add whiskey and proceed as above.
