“We host a Kentucky Derby Party every year, and have for 10 years. When each guest arrives they are given a real Churchill Downs commemorative mint julep glass to which they then add a self-stick name tag on which they print their name. This serves as their glass, name tag, and souvenir of the party. Many still have one from each year of the party as Churchill Downs produces a new one each year!!!”

Directions

  1. Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a saucepan and stir in sugar until dissolved. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and boil the syrup until it becomes clear, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Stir 1 cup mint leaves into the simple syrup and allow to cool thoroughly. Pour syrup and mint leaves into a container with a lid. Mix in 1 more cup mint leaves, cover, and refrigerate mint syrup at least 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Pour whiskey and chilled mint syrup into a large cooler or drink dispenser.
  4. To serve, fill 10-ounce glasses with ice and dispense 2 to 4 ounces mint julep mixture into each glass. Top with ice water and 1 or 2 mint leaves per cocktail and stir.

It is perfect--we followed the "cook's note" and used 6 cups of water and sugar for the simple syrup.

Worked well for New Years, but didn't go as fast as drinks from year's past. We went a bit sweeter. The feedback while good overall included a number of "strong" and "too sweet" comments. We'll experiment with adding lemon juice to the leftovers (we premixed it to avoid the recipe variation you get from filling the fountain while drunk).
