Mint Julep Recipes

Orange Mint Juleps
When mint, bourbon, and sugar join forces, magic ensues. Try our favorite mint julep recipes, including variations on the classic cocktail recipe and a few julep-flavor dessert recipes, too!

Classic Mint Julep

Think mint juleps are difficult? Think again! You're three ingredients away (four, if you count ice cubes) from a clinking glass of this classic cocktail.

Mint Julep Dip

If happy hour and the dessert course had a child, this boozy dip would be it. Pair its minty, creamy goodness with fresh fruit, pound cake, or our favorite—grilled doughnuts.

Ginger-Mint Julep

Think fire and ice in a single glass. Ginger-infused simple syrup gives this mint julep its tongue-tingling zap, while icy-flavor mint leaves provide contrasting coolness.  

Mint Julep Punch

Mint juleps for nine? Coming right up! This sparkling make-ahead punch is equally delicious made with regular bourbon or its fruity sibling, black cherry bourbon.

Mint Julep Ice Pops

Just when you thought mint juleps couldn't get any more refreshing, these slushy, boozy, utterly amazing ice pops enter the scene. And the dessert course is forever changed.

Orange Mint Juleps

Step aside, mojitos—there's a new citrus-mint beverage in town, featuring sweet and tangy orange juice. Add a splash of bourbon, and it's a flavor mash-up for the ages.
