Thumbs up The Official Summer Drink Recipe Thread

Spring is in the air and so, naturally, my thoughts turn to sipping at an afternoon restorative whilst sitting on my deck with a good book, enjoying the natural daylight that is sorely lacking for too much of the year at this latitude. And hence, this thread.

Mint Julep



Typically, any drink that involves foliage should be relegated to chick-drink status, but this one gets the nod for having the kick of a good Kentucky bourbon.

Ingredients:

- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 cups water
- Fresh mint
- Crushed ice
- Kentucky bourbon (2 oz. per serving)

Prepare as follows:

1. Make a simple mint syrup by boiling sugar and water together for 5 minutes; cool. Place in a covered container with 6 or 8 bruised mint sprigs. Refrigerate overnight. Good for ~44 servings.

2. Make a julep by filling a julep cup or glass with crushed ice, then adding 1 tablespoon of mint syrup and 2 ounces of bourbon. Stir rapidly with a spoon to frost outside of cup or glass. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig.

Extra tips:

- Always use a premium Kentucky bourbon
- Use crushed or shaved ice and pack in cup.
- To bruise mint, place in a cup and gently pass the back of a spoon between cup and the leaves a time or two. You want the mint to release some of the fragrant oils.
- Add a straw cut to protrude just above the rim of the cup and serve. You should be able to get a faint whiff of the mint sprig when you're sipping.
- Keep the covered syrup in the refrigerator (after removing the mint leaves) if you don't plan on drinking all the servings.. Enjoy later....

A proper julep cup looks like this:



But a 12-oz Collins glass will suffice.

Please add your own favourites, with recipe.

Not a "summer" drink, per se, but definitely sounds OT-ish!

Yea, pretty much every country in Latin America has a distilled sugar cane liquor. Cachaca just seems to have an extra bite to it.

Hmmm.

Try taking a 2L bottle of iced tea, remove about 1/4 of the ice tea, replace with quality amber rhum, add 3-4 cinnamon sticks and some fresh mint leaves that you've bruised a bit.

Mix, refrigerate, and serve cold on the rocks.

I enjoy Stoli Orange and tonic in the summer. Light and very refreshing without being really sweet.

Had one at a Cajun place on Friday... dee-lish. The crawfish etouffee was great, too.

Natascia had a Hurricane. I should have asked if they use the "official" Pat O'Brien's Hurrican Mix... but didn't.

I made two bottles of the stuff for a camping trip last year, it was very well received. I'm trying to recall if there was anything else in it but, short of adjusting the amount of rhum to your taste, I can't think of any omissions.
