Very refreshing. The mint used in juleps is called Corsican Mint. It has tiny leaves & the plant grows as a ground cover - much different than peppermint and similar varieties. The flavor is very strong. I planted some this spring and have enjoyed it in tea, orange juice, and cocktails.

Darn! I thought I just created a no liquor Mojito with this recipe. It sure is good though!

Very yummy! Easy too. I had to make a second batch of the syrup later in the day because I liked it so much. I also tried it with Limeaid and I loved it that way. It's a very refreshing drink and I am sure I will enjoy them throughout the summer.

i enjoy this all summer long. and if you want bourbon in it, stir in a jigger. i do not think it needs it. frosted ice cold glasses a must. good lemonade a major must. no premade stuff.

This is great! I think I've looked for an alcohol free version before but could not find it. I'm not a huge mint fan, but this was delicious!

I brought these to a luncheon for my pregnant sister. They looked incredibly elegant, and tasted really refreshing. She and all the other guests loved them! Never missed the alcohol! Thank you for the recipe!

I made this as well as the Mint Julep with alcohol. Everyone enjoyed this one more. Very refreshing and great tasting. Great use for my mint from my Aero Garden!
