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.

  • 1-1/2 parts Maker's Mark® Bourbon
  • Fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup* muddled with mint
  • Splash of distilled water
  • Powdered sugar

Mix together simple syrup* muddled with mint, Maker's Mark® Bourbon and distilled water. Fill glass with crushed ice and pour mixture over top. Sprinkle top of ice with powdered sugar. Garnish with a mint sprig.

*Simple syrup

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup distilled water

Heat to dissolve sugar, stirring constantly so the sugar does not burn. Set aside to cool.
