Mint Julep

I've been drinking mint juleps every night in the past week using the recipe from Joy the Baker because last Sunday was the Kentucky Derby. Yesterday, i improvised it a little bit by using both basil and mint leaves.

10 basil leaves
10 mint leaves
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
sparkling water (or filtered water)

  • Muddle the leaves and sugar using 1 tablespoon of bourbon until leaves are bruised and the sugar is dissolved
  • Fill the cup with ice cubes
  • Pour in the bourbon to 1/3 (or 1/2 if you want stronger) of the glass
  • Top with the sparkling or filtered water
  • Garnish with fresh mint leaves
