Dissolve 1 cup of sugar into 3 cups of club soda, and combine this with 3 teaspoons of lime juice and 6 ounces of thawed lemonade concentrate. Bring this to a boil before removing it from heat. Immediately add 6 tablespoons of creme de menthe, and allow the mixture to chill. Once the drink is ready to be served, combine 3 parts of the syrup with 5 parts water. Pour into glasses, and top the Mint Julep with mint leaves and a bamboo skewer with 2 pineapples and a cherry. If desired, serve the mint julep with ice.

Mint juleps are typically alcoholic beverages consisting of bourbon, crushed ice, sugar and mint. However, Disneyland, catering to its young guests, created a non-alcoholic version of the drink. As of 2015, Disneyland Park in New Orleans Square sells New Orleans mint juleps for about $3.50 a glass. The mint julep bar is located outside the train station, next to the French Market. According to Mouse Planet, some find that Disneyland's mint julep has an unpleasant, antiseptic taste, though the beverage is still quite popular with other park goers.
