Check out this cocktail with strawberries, bourbon, and beer! I love the standard mint julep but I also like playing around with different ingredients to create a new flavors. Let's call this one the "breakfast julep" because it has mandarin orange juice and will ease you on a path of mint julep day drinking. Its almost like you are having a really good spiked orange juice. The mint, orange, and bourbon are awesome together and create a small kick of flavor that sends me over the edge. I cannot get enough of this mint julep and plan on making a big batch for your next gathering! Note: If you are making this for a group you could use orange juice instead of mandarin orange juice to make things easier.

The classic cocktail is traditionally made by combining bourbon for order assignment online colleagues, mint and simple syrup —which is just a fancy name for water mixed with sugar—and serving it over crushed ice in a silver julep cup.
