Mint Mezcal Julep with lime

Mighty Mint Julep Mezcal Cocktail

  • Author: Libby Volgyes


The mezcal cocktail is perfectly balanced with fresh lime juice and homemade mint simple syrup. It really has a smoky, mezcal kick!



Mezcal Mint Julep

  • 1.5 ounces Mezcal
  • .75 ounces fresh lime juice
  • .75 ounces mint simple syrup

Mint Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • ¾1 cup of fresh mint leaves

Bring all the syrup ingredients to a boil over low and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Make sure the sugar is dissolved and turn off the heat. Let the mint leaves infuse for another 10 minutes, then strain out the mint and store the simple syrup in the fridge after cooling.


Add Mezcal, lime juice and mint simple syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice.

Shake vigorously to chill for 10-15 seconds.

Strain into a low-ball glass over a big ice cube and enjoy!


Simple syrup will keep 2-3 weeks in the fridge.

Try the mint simple syrup in coffee. It’s delicious!
