Berry Moroccan Mint Julep Recipe | Stash Tea

You’d be hard-pressed to find mint julep recipes created with tea. We decided to change that. Before coming up with ours, we knew two things: first, it had to be easy to make, ‘cause that’s just what we like here at Stash. And second, we wanted to taste some fresh mint tea in it. Since our Moroccan Mint green iced tea is flavored with a hint of lemongrass, it gives this recipe a nice twist compared to a regular mint julep. And then of course we had to add some blackberries to make this derby drink even more fun. The outcome? Refreshing, bourbon-forward, and sweet. In one word? Yum.

What makes this recipe so easy to make is the fact that you don’t have to have any perishable ingredients on hand! All of these items are pantry-friendly. Plus, the Moroccan Mint simple syrup can be used in many different cocktails. It will level up your bartending game, and it can last for over a week when kept in an airtight container in your fridge.
