Honey and Ginger Julep (Booze-Free)
1 tbsp just-boiled water
8 mint leaves
4 ½ tsp honey
ice-cold ginger beer
silver julep cup or highball
sprig of mint
Mix the freshly boiled water with 2 fresh mint leaves and stir to wilt. Stir in the honey and then remove the mint leaves. Leave to cool completely.
Place 6 fresh mint leaves at the base of a glass. Pack the glass with crushed ice. Pour in the honey syrup, mix and stir fast. Top up with ice-cold ginger beer. Add more ice to top, and stir again before adding a final sprig of mint.*
