Irish Mint Julep Cocktail Recipe
An Irishman and a Southern belle walk into a bar. Wish we had more to the joke, but all we've got is a delicious Irish twist on a Southern classic - whiskey replaces bourbon in this minty fresh Julep.
4 mint leaves
2 tsp water
1½oz Irish whiskey
¼oz Crème de Menthe
Mint sprigs, for garnish
In a tall glass, muddle the mint leaves with the sugar and water. Fill the glass with ice and pour whiskey and crème de menthe over the ice. Garnish with mint sprigs
