If you've never had a traditional mint julep, be sure to include this easy recipe at your next Derby Day party or summer gathering. Make the mint syrup in advance and cocktail prep will be a breeze.
The mint syrup can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for several days.
There is enough syrup to make several drinks.
Be sure to just make one drink at a time so the crushed ice doesn’t melt too quickly.
Traditionally this drink is served in a silver cup but if you can’t find one a glass will work fine.
