Mint Juleps for your Kentucky Derby Party, mint julep recipe

Compare Mint Julep recipes and consider tempting alternatives:
Mint Juleps | Alcohol-Free Mint Julep | Mojito | Mint Tea Punch

A few years back we turned on the Today Show to see the smiling face of Al Roker standing at Churchill Downs learning how to make a classic mint julep from Fred Noe, a sev­enth-​gen­er­a­tion dis­tiller for Jim Beam. We think this might still be the best Mint Julep Recipe out there and we must admit, since then, we have spent many, many hours testing lots of other recipes. 🙂

.Here is the Mint Julep Recipe as seen on the Today Show:

  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 2 parts Bourbon
  • Add crushed ice
  • The most important part is the mint – first spank the mint and then add it to the mint julep cups

And letting our guest serve themselves would free up our designated bartenders so they too could enjoy the festivities. The hardest part about making the Moscow Mule is finding beautiful affordable mugs. So we were thrilled to be find these copper mugs. We love them all but are particularly enamored with the hammered copper mugs and think this Moscow Mule Gift Set would make a great stocking stuffer and holiday gift exchange present!
