A non-alcoholic Mint Julep is perfect for any Kentucky Derby Party, especially if your party will have children or teens in attendance.
Mix sugar, cold water, lemon juice and at least six mint sprigs in a bowl and let stand for 45 minutes for flavors to meld. Strain the mixture and remove mint. Tip: Because this mixture takes 45 minutes to meld the flavors, be sure to make more than enough at one time to serve all your guests.
Using two 2 quart pitchers place half of the above mixture and half of the ginger ale in each pitcher. Top with lemon slices and additional mint sprigs in the pitchers or use for each glass.
The one thing you need for mint juleps? Lots and lots of crushed ice, so be sure to stock up!
This recipe makes approximately 3 quarts Non-Alcoholic Mint Juleps (about 12 - 8 ounce cups). Be sure to make enough at once to eliminate prep time after your guests have arrived.
