Wondering how to mke a mint julep at home? Put the icing sugar and mint leaves into a cocktail shaker.
Fill the shaker almost to the brim with ice and add 3 cl whiskey. Shake vigorously.
Pour into a glass and add the remaining 3 cl whiskey.
Decorate with a sprig of mint leaves and serve with a short straw so that you almost have to press your nose into the mint while drinking.
