Don’t Judge Me Mondays: Hot Julep

/ Uncategorized

Welcome to Don’t Judge Me Mondays!  I hope the new yea is starting off well for all of you. Now that the weather is cool I find myself veering more towards tea, especially in the evenings.  Peppermint is probably my favorite flavor.  I like it nice and sweet and strongly flavored. Naturally, I started thinking of ways I could make a boozy version of peppermint tea.  I was reminded of a Mint Julep.  So why not take those flavors but make a hot version!

Let’s get to it!

Start by pouring the boiling water into your favorite mug and steeping the tea bag.  I like a strong peppermint flavor, so I steeped mine for 5 minutes.  

You can take it out after 3 if you’d like the peppermint flavor not as strong.

Now add the sugar and stir until it’s dissolved. Finally, pour in your bourbon and give it a final stir.

Since I really wanted to taste the peppermint, I didn’t use as much bourbon.  If you’d like yours more boozy, use 1 1/2 ounces (or 1 shot) instead.

My friend Emily gave me this fox mug, isn’t it cute!

Curl up on the couch and enjoy!

Hope you’re all staying warm out there!
