Mint Julep consists primarily, a Bourbon and Fresh Mint. This Bourbon based cocktail's preparing methods may vary considerably from one bartender to another. Mint Julep is one of those cocktails whose origin is unknown, but we can say that it is originated in Southern USA during 18th Centuary. Traditionally, mint juleps were often served in silver or pewter cups, and held only by the bottom and top edges of the cup.

The classic Kentucky Derby drink requires the perfect balance of mint, sweetness, and bourbon. We love both straight bourbon and its aromatic alliance with fresh mint. Let's prepare this Classic Bourbon refresher.

  • 60 ml or 2 oz Four Roses Kentucky Straight Bourbon
  • 6 Fresh Mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp Powdered Sugar or 2-3 dashes of Sugar syrup
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • Crushed Ice
  • 1 tbsp Mint syrup

Glass: The proper way to serve a mint julep is in a frozen silver goblet, but you can use Highball Glass instead.

How to Prepare a Perfect Mint Julep

  2. Fill the glass with crushed ice and add bourbon.
  3. Top with more ice and garnish with a mint sprig.

The 1862 edition of Bar-Tenders Guide: How to Mix Drinks or The Bon-Vivant's Companion by Jerry Thomas includes five recipes for the mint julep (as well as an illustration of how it is to be served) allowing for either Cognac, brandy, gin, whiskey or sparkling Moselle.
