A Mint Julep is a Bourbon based cocktail that also contains sugar syrup, crushed ice, and of course, fresh mint. It is thought that the Mint Julep originated in the southern United States, during the eighteenth century.
Traditionally, spearmint is the mint of choice used in a Mint Julep, especially if you come from Kentucky. However, there are plenty of recipes that just call for the use of mint leaves, not specifically spearmint.
Tennessee Whiskey is a must in this cocktail and the raspberry Chambord and lemonade compliment it beautifully. The freshly squeezed lime gives the drink its fresh and fruity twist; the combinations are just superb.
Sweet like a teddy bear, this cocktail will be to your liking if you have a sweet tooth
