Non-Alcoholic Mint Julep Recipe for your Kentucky Derby Party

A non-alcoholic Mint Julep is perfect to serve at your Kentucky Derby Party for children and teens who are too young to drink the alcoholic version and for adults who'd rather bypass the booze and still enjoy the taste of a Mint Julep, the Kentucky Derby's official drink.

The one thing you need for mint juleps? Lots and lots of crushed ice, so be sure to stock up!

This recipe makes 12 cups (3 quarts).

1-1/2 cups sugar
2 cups cold water
5 cups crushed ice
2-1/2 cups chilled ginger ale
3/4 cup lemon juice
6 mint springs (at least)
Lemon slices for garnish if you wish

Mix sugar, cold water, lemon juice and at least six mint sprigs in a bowl and let stand for 45 minutes. Strain mixture and remove mint. Because this takes 45 minutes to meld the flavors, be sure to make more than enough at once 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 and additional mint sprigs in the pitchers or use for each glass.

This recipe makes approximately 3 quarts Non-Alcoholic Mint Julep (about 12 - 8 ounce cups). Be sure to make enough at once to elminate prep time after your guests have arrived.
