The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow, which means it’s time to have a mint julep.
I am shocked to discover I haven’t posted a julep recipe before. I suppose I’m intimidated: It’s a Southern drink and I’ve never had one made in the South. I’ve barely spent time in the South.
So I’ll just point you to a full dissertation on the subject, and a couple of easier recipes, plus a big pile of facts as well.
I recommend that you use a high quality bourbon, and the best and smallest mint leaves you can find. Cheers.
