[ Recipe: Morrocan Mint Julep ] ~ from Monterey Bay Herb Co
morrocan mint julep

Here's a spirited twist on the original Derby Day classic that switches out the traditional bourbon for rum.

1 ounce mint-flavored simple syrup*
1 cup crushed ice
2 ounces light rum
1 tablespoon Moroccan Mint Tea, cooled
1 handful fresh mint (for garnish)

In a highball glass or julep cup, combine the syrup (directions below), ice, rum and tea; stir well. Top off the glass with additional ice and a sprig of fresh mint, if you wish.

Combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup of granulated sugar and 3 tablespoons loose Moroccan Mint Tea in a sauce pan and heat over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.

Simmer until thickened, stirring often. Remove from heat and let cool. The syrup can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
