If you’re looking to tuck into a thirst quenching mint julep for this Kentucky Derby weekend look no further! The most classic of recipes is as simple as can be thanks to Jenn at Camille Styles.
25–30 mint leaves + 2.5 ounces of bourbon + 1 ounce of simple syrup + ice + one big shake = the perfect mint julep to strain over crushed ice
Just topped with a sprig of mint, place a few bets and add a great hat.

Definitely want to try this!
Obsessed with the silver cups. Look so cool and refreshing.
Looks good. We planted some mint in one of our gardens a couple of years ago, and it expands and grows really quickly. Fresh mint also makes for some wonderful mojitos by the pool.
Those look delish!!
mmmm, working on it!
i'm a HUGE mojito lover, and this drink looks so refreshing! want one asap haha
Definitely want to try!
Totally missed the Derby this weekend! Will have to try a mint julep at some point though!
