I really liked this method of making the simple syrup. To me the mint infuses better when the water is boiling. I made these with Maker's Mark - yummy!
I did enjoy this recipe, but not everyone that I served it to enjoyed it as much. I found that if you add twice as much more simple syrup to each drink that they will be better received. Unless you have a kentucky whisky lover, then leave it the way the recipe reads.
This was okay, always wanted to try but haven't until now.
I think that if we were in the hot sun at the Kentucky Derby the drink would make more sense than after dinner drinks during winter at home.
This recipe is right on. Just a note to all: You can make the simple syrup, and make tea boiled down until SUPER STRONG. Keep both in the frig. Then pour into an ice filled glass, 1/4th tea and 1/4th julep syrup and fill the rest of the way with water. Wonderful way to pass an afternoon!
I had some mint-infused simple syrup in the fridge for mojitos, so I thought I'd give this a try. Of course it's strong... Anyone can see that by reading the recipe. Mint juleps are supposed to be that way, so use a nice, smooth sippin' bourbon. I used Early Times this time around and, although technically not "bourbon", it was great! Another reviewer mentioned adding a bit of tea, and I think that sounds really refreshing! Time for another sip...
This is the only way to make simple syrup! I didn't have quite enough time to let the syrup and mint sit overnight, but it was still quite tasty!
Wow, I don't know what I was expecting, but these were really strong. The taste of whisky overpowered everything - I couldn't even tell there was mint or simple syrup in it. I'll be sticking with mojitos!
I always wanted to try one of these and it was really good. I used Jack Daniels. I would make it exactly as recipe states next time, as it sounds fatastic.
I had made simple syrup for another drink recipe so it wasn't infused with mint. However, this was delicious! I used Maker's Mark and the syrup worked wonderfully with the whiskey.
