It's almost Derby Day and we have a twist on the classic Mint Julep for you using the Strawberry Agua Fresca. You can make also make this drink non-alcoholic by subbing ginger ale. So don't forget your hats and good luck!
- 1 Highball or Mint Julep Glass
- 1 Tablespoon Strawberry Agua Fresca
- 4-5 Sprigs of Mint
- 1 Fresh Strawberry loosely chopped
- 2 ½ Ounces of Kentucky Bourbon or substitute Ginger Ale
- Crushed Ice
In the glass put 1 tablespoon of Strawberry mix. Then take the mint leaves off the sprig and place into glass. Add the chopped strawberry pieces and gently muddle all the items together in the glass for about 1 minute. Next, pour in about 2 1/2 ounces of bourbon and stir for about 30 seconds. For a non-alcoholic version pour the same amount of Ginger Ale. Add lots of ice and give one final stir.
Now you are ready to celebrate in style!
