Mint Julep


2 oz
A whiskey made primarily from a corn grain mash, aged in charred oak barrels.
1 tsp
Granulated sugar is a sucrose formed with glucose and fructose join by covalent bonding. Sugar is soluble in water, increasing the surface area (smaller grain size) or heating the water, dissolves sugar faster. Some cocktails use sugar directly but more use it indirectly in syrups/liqueurs.
4 leaf
Aromatic plants used in cocktails as a garnish or muddled into the liquor to add a light fresh taste. Common in the Mint Julep.
2 tsp
You know what this is, dihydrogen monoxide. Used in cocktails to aide dilution and dissolution. It is liquid at room temperature but becomes solid 'ice' at 0 Celsius. Did you know ice is a mineral?
1 sprig
Aromatic plants used in cocktails as a garnish or muddled into the liquor to add a light fresh taste. Common in the Mint Julep.

In a highball glass gently muddle the mint, sugar and water. Fill the glass with cracked ice, add Bourbon and stir, or swizzle, until the glass is well frosted. Garnish with a mint sprig. #muddle #swizzle #ontherocks


Use a julep tin if you want frosted sides, filling the tin in quarters with ice while stirring. Hold the edges of tin to keep from smudging the frost on the sides. Proper preparation of the cocktail is commonly debated, as methods may vary considerably from one bartender to another. Don't worry about it.
