What is "mint julep"?

arrow

Mint julep is a classic cocktail that is popular in the southern United States, particularly in Kentucky, where it is the official drink of the Kentucky Derby. The cocktail is made with bourbon, sugar, water, and fresh mint, which is muddled with the sugar and water to release its aromatic oils and flavors. The mixture is then combined with bourbon and ice, and the drink is garnished with a sprig of fresh mint. Mint julep is known for its sweet and refreshing taste, with the bourbon providing a smooth and smoky flavor and the mint adding a crisp and herbaceous finish. It is typically served in a silver or pewter cup and is often enjoyed on a hot summer day or as a celebratory drink.
