The quintessential American summer cocktail, the Mint Julep combines Bourbon, sugar, mint, and plenty of crushed ice. We've added a layer of sophistication with our winning Swirling Mist tea to create a refined summer drink for long, hot summers on either side of the Atlantic.
Brew the Swirling Mist tea bag in 90ml boiled water for approx. 3 minutes. Remove the bag then let the tea cool at room temperature before placing in the fridge to chill (where it will keep for up to 24 hours).
In a chilled julep tumbler or rocks glass, muddle (crush) a few mint leaves with the sugar. Add the Bourbon and tea and a little crushed ice. Stir well. Top up with more ice, garnish with a few mint sprigs and serve.
