Today at STYLEanthropy, we drink in style with this Mint Julep Mocktail Recipe. Mocktails are perfect for those of us who can’t drink alcohol but want something that still looks festive and celebratory. If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is a #DryJanuary (and beyond), then mocktails are the answer. On the other hand, if you are hosting a party and have guests who can’t drink any alcohol, don’t make them feel left out. Make some of these non-alcoholic Mint Julep so they can sip on something fancy too.
Let’s get mixing!
STYLEanthropists, always remember to drink in style. Hope you enjoy this Mint Julep Mocktail Recipe!
- Bottle of sparkling water (can make 4-6 glasses shown here)
- Lemon concentrate or fresh lemon juice (1/2 lemon per serving)
- ¼ cup water
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh mint leaves
- Ice cubes or crushed ice
- Mint for garnish
- Fill half of the glass with sparkling water.
- Pour about 2 tbsp of lemon concentrate or squeeze half of fresh lemon.
- In a small pot, boil ¼ cup water, ¼ cup sugar and the chopped mint leaves until sugar is fully dissolved.
- Let it cool for about 30 minutes, strain and discard the mint leaves. I left some bits for decoration, but if you want the drink to be smooth, take it out.
- Pour ice cubes or crushed ice into the glasses.
- Pour about 1-2 tablespoons of the sugar syrup on top.
- Garnish with a mint leaf and straw or stirrer (to mix everything) and serve.
