We're off to the races come Kentucky Derby day on Saturday, and with festivities in full swing we're ready to get mixing -- Mint Juleps, of course! For us this day's a good excuse to dust off the Julep cups and crush up some ice.
Mint juleps are delicious drinks, and people drink them quickly. Even the host of the party needs some time to handicap the race, call in some bets, and watch the post parade. The solution is to batch them.
Bourbon is the quintessential American whiskey and the drink of choice of many Southerners. If the recipe for mint juleps looks familiar, you would not be far wrong noticing its similarity to the Mojito.
