I'll Bring the Mint (Re-post)
I've taken out a lot of content from this post because it's not relevant as it was the first time I posted about this. Soo...let's start here:
Do you love the glasses we used for the mint juleps? Last year for Christmas, MawMaw (Jeri's mom), gave them to me and I LOVE them. They're the Mignon Faget's Creole Cottages double Old Fashioned glasses. I used them for every cocktail I make: Ramos Gin Fizzes, Mojitos,...and Mint Juleps!
Mint Julep (tweaked JUST a little):
- Crush 2 sprigs of mint in 1 oz of simple syrup in glass
- Fill glass with crushed ice
- Pour 2 oz of your finest bourbon
- Stir and sip
I think I'll be having one or so this weekend. It's a great summer drink, perfect for grilling, and pool side lounging.
