Disneyland Mint Julep, At Home
But we can have the Disneyland mint julep, or a pretty close approximation of it, courtesy of a slightly revised recipe from the Disney Food Blog:
1 cup sugar
3 tsp lime juice concentrate
3 cups water or club soda
1/2 can of thawed lemonade concentrate
6 Tbsp creme de menthe syrup (not the liqueur! this is usually found in the coffee aisle)
Optional garnishes: mint leaves, pineapple slices, maraschino cherries
Warm the sugar, lime juice, lemonade and water/club soda on the stove until the sugar has completely dissolved. Remove from heat and add creme de menthe. Chill.
To serve, combine about 3 parts syrup to 5 parts cold water/club soda. If you're feeling fancy, add mint, and skewer two pineapple slices and a cherry.
