Copycat Mint Juleps

  • Combine water and granulated sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  • When the sugar is completely melted, turn off the heat and add the Creme de Menthe syrup.
  • Let this mixture cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer to a pitcher and add in lime juice, and lemonade concentrates, and stir to combine.
  • Chill until serving time.
  • Serve over ice and garnish with lemon wedges, maraschino cherries, and mint leaves; if desired.

Notes

Homemade Creme de Menthe Syrup: Muddle 1 cup of Mint leaves and set aside. Combine 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add muddled mint leaves. Simmer together for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Strain out mint leaves if desired. This homemade syrup recipe will yield more than the amount required in the Mint Julep recipe. So you can make extra Mint Juleps, or save it for later.
