Happy Thursday friends! I’m back with another Sips With Sami recipe and this weeks drink is a total classic: Mint Julep! I personally love Juleps because they are so refreshing with all the mint and ice, perfect for a hot summer day! This recipe is VERY simple and only has 4 ingredients which are easy to grab, a total win win!
Classic Mint Julep:
Total Time: ~5-10 minutes
- 4 oz. bourbon
- 1 oz. simple syrup
- 10-14 mint leaves
- Crushed Ice
- Mint sprigs to garnish
- In a glass, combine simple syrup and mint leaves and muddle gently
- Next, add bourbon to the mixture and stir
- Top with crushed ice
- Stir slowly, add more ice if needed
- Garnish with mint leaves
Side Note: to make simple syrup, mix 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water and microwave for one minute. Stir and let sugar dissolve. Cool in refrigerator before using.
