Traditionally served in a silver Julep cup with a dome of crushed ice, this classic refresher is a favorite in May when mint makes an appearance and the weather warms. Recipe makes one cocktail.
- 2 oz bourbon (preferably Old Forester)
- 1 ½ tsp superfine sugar
- 10 mint leaves
- 1 mint sprig, for garnish
- Seltzer water
- Crushed ice
Add the 10 mint leaves to the bottom of your glass with the superfine sugar and gently muddle. Be careful not to tear the leaves. If you don’t have a muddler, the flat end of a wood spoon or other kitchen tool will work just fine.
Add crushed ice, leaving the mint and sugar in the bottom of the glass.
Measure and pour in your bourbon; top off with a small amount of seltzer water.
Finish with a sprig of fresh mint, sip, and enjoy!

As the Curator of Performing Arts here at Wave Hill, it has been my joy to program our musical performances both in- and outdoors. From our Armor Hall concerts, to summer Sunset Wednesdays and Sonic Experiences, Wave Hill has been a destination to see and hear a variety of great contemporary acts. Enjoy this Spotify playlist, featuring some of my favorites!
