Tom Bulleit's Mint Julep

Drink Type: Cocktail


15 oz. Bulleit Bourbon (more Bulleit Bourbon drinks)
40 Mint Leaves (more Mint Leaves drinks)
Simple Syrup (more Simple Syrup drinks)


Wash mint leaves, pay dry and put them in a small mixing bowl. Cover with 3 ounces of Bulleit Bourbon and let soak for 15 minutes.

Remove mint, then place them in a clean cotton cloth and wring over bowl, bruising the leaves. Dip back into bourbon and wring again. Repeat several times to create mint extract. Set extract aside for 1 hour. You can also put the leaves back in the extract for a more contentrated mint flavor.

Combine mint extract (leaves included if preferred) with simple syrup in a covered glass jar and refrigerate over night.

Fill julep cups (10-12 oz., preferrably silver but glass will do) with crushed ice and insert a fresh mint srpig. Add 1.5 oz. Bulleit Bourbon to each cup. Add marinated extract to taste. Makes 8 servings.
