Yield 1 Serving
Preparation Time 5 min
Cooking Time 15-20 min
Equipments measuring cups; measuring spoons; Saucepan; wooden spoon

1 glass Ice
3 oz Mint Syrup
4 oz Soda Water
1/2 tsp Rum Extract


4 cup water
1 bunch Mint, about 1.5 ounces
2 cup Splenda
To prepare mint extract: Take a bunch of mint. Wash and place in a saucepan.
Cover with 4 cups of water and Splenda. Allow the leaves to soak for 15
minutes. Put on heat and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for
about 15 minutes. Drain the water through a sieve, removing all the mint. You
will end up with between 3-4 cups of green mint sugar water. This is your mint
julep solution.

To serve the julep, fill each glass 1/2 full with shaved ice, cubed if you do
not have shaved. Pour in a shot and a half (3oz) of julep solution. Add a 1/2
tsp of rum (or real reum) extract. Top the glass with soda water. put mint on
top. Insert a straw if you have one. Sick back on the porch swing, listen the
creek babble, and all that junk. :-)
