If you are like me, then you agree that there is nothing quite like a refreshing Mint Julep out on the terrace as the sun sets. However, something that surprised me to hear that the work 'Julep' is actually taken from the Arabic word for "Rose Syrup". This recipe is for an equally refreshing beverage as the bourbon based alternative.

Method

1 - Place 4-6 cracked ice cubes in a shaker.
2 - Add 1 measure orange juice, pineapple juice, lime juice. Then a half measure of raspberry juice.
3 - Add a handful (4 torn) mint leaves.
4 - Shake hard until a frost forms on the outside of the shaker.
5 - Top up with ginger ale.
6 - Serve in a tall glass with a sprig of mint to decorate.
