I really liked this method of making the simple syrup. To me the mint infuses better when the water is boiling. I made these with Maker's Mark - yummy!

I did enjoy this recipe, but not everyone that I served it to enjoyed it as much. I found that if you add twice as much more simple syrup to each drink that they will be better received. Unless you have a kentucky whisky lover, then leave it the way the recipe reads. This was okay, always wanted to try but haven't until now. I think that if we were in the hot sun at the Kentucky Derby the drink would make more sense than after dinner drinks during winter at home.

This recipe is right on. Just a note to all: You can make the simple syrup, and make tea boiled down until SUPER STRONG. Keep both in the frig. Then pour into an ice filled glass, 1/4th tea and 1/4th julep syrup and fill the rest of the way with water. Wonderful way to pass an afternoon!
