Disneyland’s Mint Julep Copycat

I’m not sure if it is just because the weather has suddenly gotten colder, or if I just always crave Disney, but I have been dreaming, thinking about, and almost tasting the wonderful things that Disneyland has to offer! I decided to bring Disneyland to me, and make one of my favorite drinks from one of my favorite restaurants in the park, the Blue Bayou. This Mint Julep is alcohol free and tastes refreshing, this green drink copycat is spot on!

    • If your recipe calls for mint or peppermint extract, but you have none on hand, you can sub in mint oil. Both are flavored by the leaves of the peppermint plant. The oil is more concentrated than the typical extract, so you need to use a lot less to flavor your recipe. Divide the amount of peppermint extract called for in the recipe by four. If your recipes read "1 teaspoon peppermint extract," you'll need 1/4 teaspoon oil at the most. Hope this helps.
