Mint Juleps arenâ€™t always that great.
Similar to a Mojito, theyâ€™re made of basically just mint, bourbon, sugar and water.
I think they sound more fun than they are. But, since they are the historic drink of the Kentucky Derby â€“ an official association since 1938 â€“ Iâ€™ll likely try one, on May 7.
Since I wonâ€™t be going to see the Derby live, Iâ€™m hoping to find a server who knows what theyâ€™re doing when it comes to mixing one up.
A little tip: traditionally, mint juleps were often served in silver or pewter cups, and held only by the bottom and top edges of the cup.
So, anyone have any suggestions for the best place to watch the Derby/hold a Derby Day party? Iâ€™m in the process of finishing my hat â€“ I just need the venue now.
