Mint Tea Julep

Mint Tea Julep


"I'd rather be someone's shot of bourbon than everyone's cup of tea"

Oh this is just lovely. Perfect for after work or starting up a Saturday night! The mint tea accentuates and highlights the flavours of the bourbon without covering or overpowering it, making it a successfully strong yet approachable cocktail.

Difficulty: 1 / 5


  • 4 tsp Dinner Mint Tea
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup granulated white sugar
  • ¼ cup Cara Cara Orange and Vanilla White Balsamic
  • 10-15 large mint leaves
  • 3/4 cup bourbon

Step 1 - In a saucepan, bring water to a boil with sugar and balsamic. Add tea and remove from heat, allowing 5 minutes for tea to steep. Add to jug and stir in 3 cups of cold water. Once tea has cooled, fill julep cups or highballs with crushed or cubed ice, then pour halfway with tea and divide bourbon evenly over the cups. Add fresh mint to each cup and serve.
