Rhubarb Mint Julep

The collection of rhubarb based cocktails here on Planet Byn is getting quite extensive, and I love it. We’ve made two simple syrups to stir into cocktails, infused vodka with strawberries and rhubarb, made a margarita with a jam base, and last summer a delicious mojito. I had this mint julep recipe bookmarked since last Rhubarb Season, and a little extra incentive to make it this year after celebrating the Kentucky Derby with these bourbon cookies we made for Baked Sunday Mornings.

This is a simple, pretty, refreshing cocktail to enjoy on your balcony while procrastinating from wrapping birthday and baby shower presents, which is what I did last week.
