Frozen Mint Julep

  • Yield: 4 cocktails


  • 25 fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 3 cups ice
  • 1/2 cup Bourbon
  • Mint sprigs for garnish


  • In the bottom of a tall glass, combine mint leaves and simple syrup and crush leaves with the handle of a wooden spoon – the more you mash the leaves, the more mint flavor you will extract. In a blender combine the simple syrup, ice, and bourbon and blend on the “ice crush” setting until ice is finely chopped and smooth.
  • Rub the rims of tall glasses with orange segments or a little simple syrup and dip glass rims in sugar, then fill with the frozen mint juleps and garnish with fresh mint sprigs.
