It's Mint Julep season in the South so we asked Laura Kimball of TruBee Honey for her favorite Mint Julep recipe—of course, it includes Trubee Honey!
- 2 Tablespoons - boiling water, (easiest to pour from a kettle)
- 8 - mint leaves
- 1-1/2 Tablespoons - TruBee Honey
- 2 oz. - bourbon (or whiskey)
- Crushed ice
- Mint sprigs, for garnish
Pour boiling water from a kettle or pot into a small bowl. Add mint leaves; stir until wilted. Add honey; stir until dissolved. Let mixture stand until cool; strain and discard mint. Combine 2 oz. bourbon with honey mint syrup. Pour bourbon mixture over crushed ice in frosted tumbler or tall glass. Garnish with mint sprigs.
