On a warm summer day, there’s nothing quite like a chilled cocktail. The ever so classic Mint Julep fits that profile to a T. And what better beverage to offer up for a summer wedding? Better yet, give your guests the gift of the Julep with these cute as can be favors crafted by our resident DIY goddess, Jess, and photographed by Ruth Eileen. Read below for instructions. Spoiler Alert: They’re crazy simple!
Fill one bottle with bourbon and cork it. Fill the other bottle with homemade mint simple syrup (here’s an easy recipe) and a few fresh mint leaves for garnish. Repeat with remaining bottles.
Wrap the neck of each bottle with twine and mint leaf garnish and hand out to guests! They have everything they need to whip up an awesome mint julep at home.
