Mint Julep Cocktail Mint Julep Cocktails

Choice of Whiskey:
- Your favorite bourbon
- rye whiskey
- Canadian whisky

Sugar:
Find superfine sugar. It dissolves well in cold or room temperature liquids, making it useful for cocktails. Unlike confectioners' sugar, superfine sugar's crystal size is the tiniest of all the types of granulated sugar. If you can't find superfine sugar, you can easily make your own by grinding granulated sugar in a food processor for 30 - 40 seconds.

Ice:
Use shaved or crushed ice

Glass:
Serve the cocktail in a pre-chilled silver julep cup. People in Kentucky awarded silver julep cups as prizes at county fairs as early as in 1816. (More about Mint Julep glasses)
