Maker's Mark Mint Julep

Maker's Mark Mint Julep

This cocktail is as much a part of Southern culture as hospitality. With pronounced sugar and mint notes, the Mint Julep goes exceedingly well with long summer days, horses, pretty hats and good company.

  • Splash of distilled water
  • Powdered sugar
  • Mint sprig for garnish
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup distilled water
