A Virtual Happy Hour with Garden & Gun + Blade and Bow : How to make a Mint Julep

August 6, 2020

Spending more time at home has allowed me to explore other hobbies that I usually wouldn’t have the time for cocktail making, so when Garden & Gun asked me to make a Mint Julep in partnership with Blade and Bow, I knew it was my moment to shine haha!

A Mint Julep is a cocktail that is enjoyed the most during the spring and summer months, but I honestly think its a great all year round cocktail. Now, I’m going to walk you through the process of how to make your Mint Julep at home 🙂

Mint Julep



1 ½ oz. Blade and Bow Bourbon

1 tsp. Demerara Syrup

10–12 Sprigs Mint

(crushed ice makes for a prettier cocktail but cubbed will do just fine!)

If you are more of a visual + audio learner, you can watch my “how-to” video HERE!

Add 8–10 mint leaves to a julep cup and gently muddle to express the oils. Add the Demerara syrup and Blade and Bow bourbon. Top off with crushed ice and garnish with a mint sprig and enjoy!
