Mint Julep
  • Prep Time
  • 1Servings


  • 1 teaspoon confectioners sugar
  • 5 fresh mint leaves, plus 1 mint sprig for garnish
  • 1/2 cup bourbon (4 ounces)
  • Crushed ice


Add the sugar, the mint leaves and a few drops of the bourbon to a chilled glass. Muddle or crush the mint with a spoon to create a thick paste. Add a handful of crushed ice to the glass. Place a straw so that it reaches the mint paste at the bottom of the glass. Pour the remaining bourbon over the ice. Add more crushed ice, making a mound that reaches to the top of the glass and leaving about 1 inch of the straw peeking above the rim. Garnish with a mint sprig.
