Frozen Mint Julep Cocktail Recipe
Compliments of Liz Gray
Recipe by Stephen Phillips
Frozen Mint Julep is the perfect Southern way to celebrate and cool off this summer.
Essential qualities: If you have ever tried to grow mint, you know the biggest dilemma isn’t keeping it alive, it’s keeping it from choking out the rest of your garden. Keep it at bay (and keep your guests cool) with this slushy take on a classic Southern cocktail.
Serve it with: Barbecue, grilled lamb or vegetables and pretty much any dish hailing from the South.
