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
Top your mint julep off with more crushed ice
Hint(not on the video): An extra-nice touch is to trim straws so they just slightly stick out of the cup. Hence, when guests sip from the short straws, their noses will be close to the refreshing mint garnish.
