Hot Mint Julep Recipe

Hot Mint Julep Recipe

Instead of a long cool sip on a shady Southern veranda, here the bourbon and mint are combined with coffee to produce something comforting for colder weather as well.

Ingredients : Serves 2

100-150 ml Bourbon

2 tablespoons Sugar

450 ml Hot strong black coffee

2 tablespoons Double (heavy) cream

2 sprigs Mint leaf, to decorate

Method :

Put the bourbon and sugar into two warmed large wine glasses. Add the hot coffee and stir to dissolve the sugar. Top with cream by pouring it over the back of a spoon. Do not stir. Decorate with the chopped mint leaf.


Variation : This simple recipe can be adapted for use with any one of the many different forms of alcohol available. For example, Southern Comfort or Wild Turkey will certainly add different flavor from that of ordinary bourbon.
