The Mint Julep recipe has been the official drink of the Kentucky Derby since 1938 and the most popular drink during the event. Over the two-day period of the Derby over 120,000 mint juleps are sold.
This recipe is as easy as A-B-C so prepare for some Mint Julep madness.
The ingredients are:
Mint leaves with a sprig of mint, seltzer, bourbon, sugar, ice, a pestle or wooden spoon.
This is how to prepare the Mint Julep Recipe:
First, place 3-4 mint leaves in the bottom of the glass then top with a spoonful of sugar or add sugar later to taste.
Grind the mint leaves using the pestle, being careful in not macerating them completely.
Add crushed ice as you desire, 2 to 3 fingers of bourbon and seltzer.
Lastly, stir and add sugar or other ingredients to taste, and garnish with mint sprig. That’s it! Enjoy this wonderful traditional drink!
