Mexican Mint Julep Recipe
The mint julep is a spirit-based beverage typically served over ice. But this version gives it an extra touch of Mexican flavor in honor of Cinco de Mayo - complete with mezcal, jalapenos, and brown sugar!
2 oz. Mezcal
Add brown sugar and water to a rocks glass or julep cup.
Do not muddle the brown sugar and mint leaves, just press them to release the oil.
You might be wondering why there are only 4 or 5 drops of water in this recipe. The answer? That's all it takes for the sugar to melt and create that perfect Mexican Mint Julep!
