Okeechobee
Non Alcoholic Mint Julep
Tasty without the wasted

You can think of this delightful drink as an alcohol free mint julep or simply a mint lemonade for all to enjoy.

 

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup water

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves

  • 2 cups crushed ice

  • ½ cup prepared lemonade

  • Fresh mint sprigs, for garnish

 

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the water, sugar and 1 tablespoon of chopped mint. Stir and bring to a boil. Cook until sugar has dissolved, then remove from heat and set aside to cool. After about an hour, strain out mint leaves.

     
  2. Fill 2 cups or frozen goblets with crushed ice. Pour 1/2 of the lemonade into each glass and top with a splash of the sugar syrup. Garnish each with a mint sprig and a straw. Serve on a silver platter.
