    Like many classic cocktails, the mint julep’s origins are the subject of heated debate. It is closely connected with America’s deep south where it was famously served at the Kentucky Derby, however the name derives from the Arabic ‘julap’ which means rosewater. It is believed that the drink originated in Persia and travelled into Europe where the rose petals where substituted by mint leaves. Traditionally made with bourbon, juleps can also be made from brandy or rum.


    1. Shake all ingredients with ice and fine strain into a julep cup or steel pewter half filled with crushed ice.
    2. Stir the drink into the crushed ice with a bar spoon.
    3. Top the cup with more crushed ice and stir again until the drink fills the cup.
    4. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
