Learn how to make the Mint Julep recipe:
For the Mint Julep cocktail place the mint and syrup into a julep cup, a collins glass, or a double old-fashioned glass. Muddle well to release the aroma of the mint. Add the bourbon and fill it with crushed ice. Stir well until the glass becomes frosty. Garnish your Mint Julep drink with the mint leaves.
The classic Mint Julep recipe is the cocktail of the day for May 30, when National Mint Julep Day is celebrated.
