Gin Julep

Two Shots, One Take!

A gin julep is like a mint julep, but with gin instead of bourbon and a little soda water to soften it. Maybe the soda technically qualifies this as something-not-a-julep, but in the very basest of definitions, a “julep” is just a sweet drink. A Mint Gin Julep might be a better, more descriptive name. Anywayyy, Hetal from ShowMeTheCurry came on to make this drink with me, which turned out very very good. (Secret note: I made it up on the spot using the ingredients we had.)

  1. Hilah rockin’ the mint! Drink sounds delicious. Being out-of-mind-crazy about mojitos, I know I would like this one. Whenever I see mint out shopping, I pick up a bunch. And I always have seltzer water on hand, I prefer it over club soda. When I mix this up, I will give you a toast, Texas lady!
