Maxwell Britten Makes a Mint Julep

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Maxwell Britten, head bartender at Brooklyn hot spot Maison Premiere, takes us into summer by way of tequila. In the above video, he shows us a classic variation on the mint julep, featuring agave nectar and a mound of crushed ice, for a grown-up snow cone effect.

For more recipes featuring Agave In The Raw, a healthy, natural alternative to processed sugars (and, with notes of vanilla and light caramel, a great choice for cocktails), head right this way. >>
