Mint Julep

Mint Julep cocktail

Type: Cocktail

A Mint Julep is a Bourbon based cocktail that also contains sugar syrup, crushed ice, and of course, fresh mint. It is thought that the Mint Julep originated in the southern United States, during the eighteenth century. Traditionally, spearmint is the mint of choice used in a Mint Julep, especially if you come from Kentucky. However, there are plenty of recipes that just call for the use of mint leaves, not specifically spearmint.
