Servings 1


  • 1 tsp water
  • 2 heaping tsp superfine sugar
  • 15 fresh mint leaves
  • 3 oz bourbon
  • 1 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • 2 strawberries plus more for garnish


  • In the bottom of a silver cup (or any glass), add water, sugar, strawberries and mint leaves. Muddle together until it forms a rough paste but mint and strawberries are still visible.
  • Add whiskey and stir.
  • Place ice on top of mixture and stir gently. The ice will melt, diluting your strawberry mint julep drink to a balanced, less potent libation. Garnish with mint leaves and strawberry
