Disneyland Mint Julep Recipe - I just made this as part of our FHE treat. It was FABULOUS, tastes just like the drink at New Orleans Square. I couldn't find creme de methe syrup so I used Torani peppermint syrup from Cost Plus World Market and that worked just great. I also added green food coloring. It was a big hit.
Rinse a bunch of mint and pluck the leaves. Take the cooled -- or mostly cooled -- syrup and pack it with mint leaves plucked from their stems. The stems can add woody, soapy flavors, so take the extra time to pluck. Leave the syrup and mint in a jar in the fridge overnight.
