Mint Julep Mocktail


It's Derby time here in Kentucky, and nothing says Derby quite like the classic Mint Julep! It's a time honored tradition, but just because you're not drinking alcohol doesn't mean you can't enjoy a refreshing tasty version of your own.

Check out this mocktail version of a Mint Julep below and you might just find that it becomes an anytime favorite. I made it recently on Instagram, so check out the post here to see me make it live.

Recipe & Instructions:

Muddle 1/2 to 1 oz simple syrup with mint leaves.
Add 2 oz alcohol-free bourbon alternative.
Add crushed ice.
Stir and add mint to garnish.


This minty concoction is so good as a refreshing option on warm days and is always a crowd pleaser at parties and events. Oh, and if you're a Derby fan....happy Derby!

Big time cheers from Kentucky!
