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.


  1. ooh I could really go for a mint julep! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'm definitely having one this friday after 5!

  2. Good!! Is is bad that the FIRST thought that popped into my head was "Why wait until Friday?"

  3. Matthew...have you ever had Kentucky derby pie? I made it for the first time this past Thanksgiving. I left out the Bourbon, though. I might put it in next time. It was delicious pie. Just wondering if you had. The Mint Juleps reminded me of it.

  4. I haven't, but I looked up the recipe and it look GOOD! I go to a Kentucky Derby party every year, and that would be awesome to bring!
