      My 12 yo DD made this for her annual 4-H Foods Revue as part of her assigned category for a "Kentucky Derby Day Brunch/Tea". This was the first julep either of us has tasted. While I found the lemon and mint a nice combination, I didn't care for the syrupy sweetness so much. I believe having some bourbon or even brandy would definitely cut the sugar! Of course, 4-H'ers wouldn't be serving that, :-) so we didn't add it, but I sure would for a home-serving of it! I would make again, but with less sugar and more lemon and gingerale. I can see how it would certainly be refreshing in the hot summertime (we had it in April) under the shade of a leafy tree, looking out across the verandah! We added several lemon zest strips to the bottom of the glass--which the judge thought was a nice touch, too--with a lemon slice notched to the edge of the glass for a sunny burst of color.

      A great refreshing drink. Made these for a birthday party, and everyone said "Wow". I like that the syrup is not cooked. Instead of letting it stand for 30 minutes, I let it stand in the refrigerator for a couple of days, then poured over ice and added the ginger ale. Thanks for a great summer, nonalcoholic drink!

      Wow! I was curious about these, but as I've never had a mint julep (since I don't drink booze), I had no idea what to expect. These are very tasty indeed. I skipped the lemon garnish, as I just made a glass of it instead of a pitcher. The lemon goes very well with the ginger ale, and the mint flavor is subtle but not overwhelmed. Overall a very refreshing, summery drink!
