Recipe for a batch of Mint Julep Cocktails
Recipe type: Cocktail
Cuisine: American, Southern
  • 3.5 cups of bourbon
  • 1 cup of simple syrup
  • Water to taste (when pouring individual Mint Juleps)
  • Crushed ice
  • Several sprigs of mint
  1. Infuse the bourbon as described above.
  2. In a large glass bowl or glass pitcher, add the bourbon, the simple syrup, and a little water (to taste). Stir well, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. This will allow the flavors to "marry."
