You don't serve a Mint Julep in a cocktail glass. How are you supposed to pour it over ice in a cocktail glass?

As mentioned by jetsonian, wrong glass type. Should be served in an old fashioned or collins glass.

If you have the time, heat the water and sugar to make a simple syrup. It will thicken the drink a little and make it slightly sweeter.
