Simple Mint Julep Cocktail Recipe | 4K Photo

We decided to take it easy on the chocolate front this Easter Weekend, and opted for spirits instead. Hollie picked up these awesome Indian copper mugs (yep, they're traditional used for Moscow Mules, but hey, we're rebels) last year, but we hadn't got around to using them, so we thought the long weekend would make for perfect timing.

Instead of regular photos we captured these images using the LUMIX LX100 4K camera, so you could get a real feel for the process. We took our own advice on board; playing around with the camera's settings, and adjusted accordingly. Really chuffed with the results! We've made a ton of Mint Juleps over the past few months, in fact, this is one of the easiest cocktail you could ever imagine. Plus, they get tastier as the ice starts to melt, so don't be put off by the first sip! We adapted the recipe from Laziz Hamani's Vintage Cocktails.


- 2 oz. Bourbon Whiskey - We used Woodford Reserve
- 1/2 oz. Simple Syrup
- 2 Sprigs of Fresh Mint
- A few Splashes of Angostura Bitters


- Gentle bash one Sprig of Mint in the bottom of your glass, mixed with the Simple Syrup
- Add half of the Bourbon and fill with crushed ice
- Swirl the mixture until the outside of the glass frosts
- Add some more crushed ice and the remaining Bourbon
- Serve with the second Mint Sprig, add more Simple Syrup as needed

Let us know if you decide to make some! You can see more of our 4K Photography posts here, and hear more about the process here.

    I’ll try it this weekend. It looks very refreshing. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Except for the mint, I have never heard of the other ingredients. My thing really is beer (and wine). But these photos look so good, that I'm adding this to my list (and will hopefully try it very soon).

  4. Damn refreshing! The Martini images turned out better though, did you catch them?

  5. If you didn't want anything alcoholic you could try mint, with honey, bitters and the ice?
