Raspberry Mint Julep Recipe – Non Alcoholic

With Summer arriving, I’m always on the hunt for refreshing yet tasty non-alcoholic drink recipes. For me that often includes using mint because it’s just plain lovely on a hot day. One drink that’s known for it’s minty flavour is the Mint Julep which uses bourbon in the traditional cocktail…as we all know that’s not an option for me so today I’ve done my best to come up with a spin off.

In this recipe I’ve used raspberries, mint, simple syrup and ginger ale to make what may be the BEST ever non-alcoholic Mint Julep!
