Mint Julep

The mint is in

The mint is in

Bourbon has been on super sale at one of our favorite liquor stores and our mint plants are already beginning to take off. We think this might be our drink of the summer. But no we don’t plan to buy the glasses made just for this concoction anytime soon. Our cabinets already runneth over.

Mint Julep

  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 5 mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp simple syrup

Tear four mint leaves and mix with simple syrup in the bottom of a tumbler using a muddler or back of a spoon (or mint julep cup if you have one.) Add crushed ice and bourbon. Garnish with mint leaf.

About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    I love the photo you took of the Mint Julep! You know, just the other day I was watching an old episode of ‘Good Eats’ and Alton Brown showed up to make a Mint Julep – I think something is telling me I need to makes those my Drink of Choice this summer. Like Cecilia, I love bourbon!
