An alcohol free mint julep for you non-drinkers out there.... now you don't have to drink water and can enjoy the classic mint julep with a slight twist while watching the Melbourne Cup!
Just made this and it's unbelievably good! I did however change it slightly as I had no real lemonade only apple. But being proper apple juice it certainly tasted just as good. Added a dash of fresh lime too. Took a cool photo but it doesn't seem to want to upload. - 04 Jul 2017
Very refreshing. The mint used in juleps is called Corsican Mint. It has tiny leaves & the plant grows as a ground cover - much different than peppermint and similar varieties. The flavor is very strong. I planted some this spring and have enjoyed it in tea, orange juice, and cocktails. - 26 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Darn! I thought I just created a no liquor Mojito with this recipe. It sure is good though! - 15 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
