Mint Julep Mocktail : Mocktail Monday


  • *Makes 2 low ball glasses
  • 2 ounces simple syrup
  • 1 ounce lemon juice (or you can make my Simple Lemon Syrup
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint + more for garnish
  • 8 ounces ginger ale


  1. Pour lemon simple syrup (or lemon juice & simple syrup) in a small glass with the mint sprigs & muddle well
  2. Refrigerate this muddled mint mixture for 30-60 minutes to infuse the mint flavor into the syrup
  3. Fill low ball glass with ice
  4. Pour 1.5 ounces of your mint/lemon mixture into each glass
  5. Top with ginger ale to fill
  6. Garnish with additional mint
  7. *Note- you can strain out the larger pieces of mint when pouring into your glasses - I liked the tiny pieces of green color in my drink - so I wasn't too careful about getting it all out.
