Recipe Notes

If it doesn't have a bouquet of Mint on top, and if you're not using crushed ice, you're doing a Julep wrong! Don't skimp out on these important details as they will change the cocktail for you. For suggestions on syrup flavours, I would try a Raspberry Syrup, Strawberry Blackpepper Reduction, Hibiscus Rose Syrup or Pistachio Lemon Syrup. The skies the limit here. At the event I mixed with a Ginger Syrup or Strawberry Rhubarb. See where your creative mind takes you and let me know what you whip up in the comments below!
