Fabulous FG Friday Cocktail: Mint Julep

Pin It
It's Kentucky Derby weekend!  I hope your party is planned, your food is prepped, your space is decorated, and you have some good bourbon ready for you mint juleps!
Mint Julep

It may sound silly, but good crushed ice makes a huge difference in a mint julep (as does the quality of bourbon, of course.)  We like to buy our ice the morning of the races at Sonic Drive-In.  Yes, really.

Bourbon
Simple Syrup muddled with mint leaves (1 part sugar & 1 part water heated until dissolved, add mint leaves, muddle, store in refrigerator)
Fresh mint for serving
crushed ice

Time for Derby party hats, heels, and Millionaire Row!
