Thin Mint Julep
Brown Derby Cocktail
To truly savor the flavor of your favorite Girl Scout cookies all year round, try this take on the classic Mint Julep. With a base of crisp mint and smooth bourbon, this cocktail is perfectly complemented by rich white crème de cacao and topped off with a Thin Mint cookie for an added burst of chocolatey sweetness.
This drink is similar to traditional juleps in its construction, with crushed ice packed generously into the silver mug until the vessel is frosted on the outside. The pièce de résistance in this cocktail is the Thin Mint cookie—adding a sweet and crunchy feeling that makes a tasty snack in between sips.
While this recipe might stray from the classic formula of a julep, it still remains true to the spirit of this iconic cocktail.
Place the mint leaves and simple syrup into a Julep cup and gently muddle.
Add the bourbon and white creme de cacao
Pack the Julep cup halfway with crushed ice.
Stir until the cup is frosted on the outside.
Top with more crushed ice to form a mound.
Garnish with a mint sprig and a Thin Mint cookie. Enjoy!
