The Old Forester Mint Julep cocktail recipe is a traditional, from-scratch build of the south’s most infamous warm-weather cocktail.
Pack mint julep cup with crushed ice. In a mixing glass, combine bourbon, syrup, and mint leaves. Lightly bruise mint leaves with a muddler, strain contents into julep cup. Garnish with 3 generous sprigs of mint.
*Make sure to slap mint. Make sure to insert a straw into the ice near mint.
