Yes we have Mint Julep’s in the house!!
How can you have a Kentucky Derby Party with out Pie…I covered that in my last post 😉
Or without Mint Julep’s!!!!
HAPPY DERBY DAY EVERYONE!!!!
So cheers to the Kentucky Derby that will run tonight at
6:24 pm est.
It’s just simple all you need is some Kentucky Bourbon!!!
And the official sliver mug…okay I don’t have that but if you
would go to the Derby your’s would be served in them 🙂
sugar and water in a pan to make a simple syrup
I use about a 1/4 cup of mint, then I muddled it with the end of a wooden spoon
Done muddling 🙂
Then I add ice, bourbon, simple syrup, cap it
Shake it, pour over crushed ice
Then serve with a garnish of mint
Kentucky Bourbon 1 – 1 1/2 oz each glass
Mint – lots of mint, to muddle in glass
simple Syrup – 2 – 4 tbsp. its up to you
2-4 tbsp. water, club soda, 7up etc.
Simple Syrup is equal parts water and sugar (mine is dark because I use pure cane sugar) heat in a sauce pan stirring to melt then let cook for a couple of minutes then let cool before using.
Okay as I was out last week look what I found
Yes this is a Mint Julep Soda
Plantation Style Mint Julep Soda
The soda was pretty good, it was like Sprite or 7up with Mint, I enjoyed it, it was rather refreshing if I do say so myself 🙂
I also poured a little into my “Real Mint Julep” 🙂
So now I’m ready for the Kentucky Derby, I one for each hand 🙂
HAPPY DERBY DAY!!!!
Oh and don’t forget your hat!!!
