Mint Julep

Mint drinks are not served so often as some of the other fruit beverages, but those with whom they find favor will undoubtedly be delighted with mint julep prepared according to the following recipe:

Sufficient to serve eight.


  • 4 sprigs mint
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 quart water
  • 1 cup red cherry juice
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice


Crush the mint with the sugar, using a potato masher or a large spoon. Add the water and fruit juices and strain. Serve over crushed ice and garnish the glasses with sprigs of mint. Tall, narrow glasses are especially attractive for serving this drink.
