Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

6 cups fresh mint, rinsed, stems trimmed (about 6 large bunches)
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons finely grated orange peel
5 cups cold water
4 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups bourbon
crushed ice
10 servings
24 hours 10 minutes 24 hrs prep


Combine mint, lemon juice, orange juice, and orange peel in a large heatproof bowl.

Bring 5 cups water and sugar to boil in large saucepan over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil until syrup is reduced to 5 cups, about 10 minutes.

Pour hot syrup over mint and juices. Let stand 15 minutes. Chill uncovered until cold, then cover and chill 1 day.

Strain syrup into large pitcher, pressing on solids in strainer to release all syrup. Add bourbon, then 2 cups crushed ice and stir until ice dissolves.
