George’s Mint Julep Recipe

Clean enough mint sprigs to decorate each glass and you will need aobut 10-12 extra to “muddle in the syrup”. 

Simple Syrup:  A day or two ahead, combine 1 part water to 2 parts sugar. 5 lb. bag of sugar and half as much water.  Boil for 5 minutes, pour into pitcher and refrigerate.  When cool, crush extra mint leaves and stir into syrup or “muddle”.  Strain or spoon out leaves before using.

1 part syrup to 2 1/2 parts Bourbon.  Pour over crushed ice and garnish with mint.  You can order official Derby Glasses from Churchill Downs to send home as party favors. 

Take time to enjoy…4:00 PM the first Sat. in May.  I will be ready…having a more than fantastic Spring…5 closings in May!  I would have never guessed…thank you for all the referrals from former clients.  I work for great people.
