    Many thanks for those that tried this. Mint Juleps are a tradition, but they do not need to be traditional to be good. The clear mint syrup seems to make them more palatable.

    Love mint juleps period. Yeah baby! Over the tongue and past the nose, some liquid heaven is headed for the toes. Makes for a cleaner look rather than the muddled mint leaves and no pieces.

    I'm glad you posted this. I have only ever seen julips made with fresh muddled mint. I never made them because they seem too last minute. I'll give this one a try soon. THX
