Sources say that Kentucky Senator Henry Clay first concocted the mint julep in the 1800s. No matter who invented the cocktail, or when exactly they discovered the terrific combination of mint, sugar and bourbon, it's now an American classic that has as rich a flavor as it does history.



  • 8 to 10 mint leaves

  • 1 Sprig of mint for garnish

  • 1 Tablespoon sugar, more or less to taste

  • 1 1/2 Ounce clean fresh water

  • 3 Ounce premium Bourbon

  • Crushed ice




Step 1:

Rinse the mint and don't dry it. The water helps flavor the cocktail.

Step 2:

Put the leaves in a 12 ounce cocktail glass and pour the sugar on top. Muddle them together with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon.

Step 3:

When the leaves and wet sugar begin to turn to paste, add water and bourbon, and stir with a fork until the sugar dissolves.

Step 4:

Top with crushed ice and garnish with the sprig of mint.
