Strawberry Mint Julep
This sweet spin on the Derby-day classic will keep you cool all summer long!
- 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
