Mint Julep Recipe

The Kentucky Derby is today and while there is no football to keep us entertained, gambling and horses do an OK job a few times a year.

We did this last year so I thought I’d throw it up again. The drink of choice during the Kentucky Derby is of course, the Mint Julep. It isn’t a drink folks often make so we’ve got a recipe for you below.

Anybody going to a derby party? More importantly, anyone placing a large bet today?

Mint Julep Recipe:

3 ounces Bourbon must. Put the Irish whiskey away (just this once).

8 mint leaves (per drink)

1 tablespoon of sugar

2 ounces of water

Throw the leaves in a tumbler glass. Dump the sugar on top and add just a few drops of water. Crush the hell out of it all with a wooden spoon. Really mash it good. Throw in the water and bourbon. Add a couple cubes of ice.


Also if you are a woman, you’re supposed to wear a big, ugly hat. Happy gambling, everybody.

Also, happy Cinco de Mayo. Wonder if anyone is throwing a Cinco de Derby party?
