Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
The Kentucky Derby is this weekend and since I am not good at making hats, I thought instead I’d share a recipe for Bourbon Mint Juleps instead. According to Wikipedia, there is almost 120,000 mint juleps served over the two day event at Churchill Downs (the Kentucky Oaks is on Friday and the Kentucky Derby is on Saturday).
Bourbon Mint Julep — from About.com, makes one glass
Place mint and sugar cubes in a Collins glass and muddle until sugar is dissolved and the mint has released its oils and aroma.
Add the bourbon.
Fill glass with ice and stir well.
Garnish with mint sprig.
