Disneyland Mint Julep, At Home

Despite the daily pleas from Princess Goat and the Goatling, no, we can't go to Disneyland every day.

But we can have the Disneyland mint julep, or a pretty close approximation of it, courtesy of a slightly revised recipe from the Disney Food Blog:

1 cup sugar
3 tsp lime juice concentrate
3 cups water or club soda
1/2 can of thawed lemonade concentrate
6 Tbsp creme de menthe syrup (not the liqueur! this is usually found in the coffee aisle)
Optional garnishes: mint leaves, pineapple slices, maraschino cherries

Warm the sugar, lime juice, lemonade and water/club soda on the stove until the sugar has completely dissolved.  Remove from heat and add creme de menthe. Chill.

To serve, combine about 3 parts syrup to 5 parts cold water/club soda. If you're feeling fancy, add mint, and skewer two pineapple slices and a cherry.
