Blueberry Honey Mint Juleps, a fresh take on a classic favorite!! Kentucky Derby here we come!
- American Honey Whiskey
- 1 pint of blueberries for puree
- 2 tablespoons honey for puree
- juice from 1/2 lemon for puree
- 1 cup sugar for simple syrup
- 1 cup water for simple syrup
- 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves for simple syrup
- mint leaves for garnish
In a small saucepan, bring the sugar and water to a boil.
Once boiling, take off of heat and stir in the mint leaves.
let sit for 30 minutes or until the syrup has reached your desired minty-ness :)
Strain the syrup and discard mint leaves (you can leave them in if you want them in the drink). This is your simple syrup.
In a food processor or blender, blend the blueberries, honey, and lemon juice until smooth. set aside. This is your puree.
In a shaker, combine equal parts whiskey and puree (I chose one shot of each, about 1.5 ounces) and about 2 shots of the simple syrup. if you prefer you drink stiffer, use more whiskey and less syrup.
Pour over ice.
Wear your best derby hat and enjoy!
