Mint Julep Cocktail Recipe

Mint Julep Cocktail is a classic Southern drink that is perfect for hot summer days or any time you’re in the mood for a refreshing and boozy beverage. This cocktail features a mixture of bourbon, mint, sugar, and crushed ice, served in a chilled silver or pewter cup.

The mint leaves are muddled with the sugar to release their essential oils, creating a bright and refreshing flavor that complements the smoky notes of the bourbon. The crushed ice helps to keep the drink icy cold and refreshing, making it a perfect choice for sipping on a warm afternoon or evening.
