Hi, I'm mathilde


I love mint, and I usually add mint to my morning routine (somehow!) to wake me up. So naturally, I would ask for extra mint in this classic cocktail after a long day at my day job (back when happy hours were in person) — #BigMistake!

The key to a Mint Julep is to be gentle when muddling mint. Over muddling can make the mint taste bitter and grassy. I’m happy to find a balance in these three ingredients to make this drink sweet, smoky, and herbal. If you have your own variation of the Mint Julep, let me know, I’d love to try it.

Here’s what you need to make a delicious Mint Julep

  • Mint Leaves
  • 2 oz Bourbon
  • 1/2 oz Simple Syrup
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Now here’s how to make it…

In your favorite glass, gently muddle mint leaves with simple syrup. Now fill glass with crushed/shaved ice and add bourbon. Stir until glass is frostedGarnish with a mint leaves and bitters
