Hey, I just realized that today is mint julep day!
I’ve never had a mint julep, but doesn’t it just make you think of Jay Gatsby and the Kentucky Derby and the old south barbecues? They sound fabulous! I mean, I love mint! So let’s give this a try
To make my mint julep, I did what every 21st century girl would do, I googled it! This cute little blurb popped up! And I did exactly what it said.
|So easy, right?|
Mint juleps are strong! I mean, it’s bourbon, sugar, water, and mint leaves. I won’t lie to you, my mom and I are both wimps. We had to water ours down, but with some water, they’re just right for sipping after a long day of work! (Or before work, if you’re a blogger)
My dad’s wasn’t watered down at all, and he actually wanted another once he finished his first! I’m not quite, shall we say, tough enough to drink basically straight bourbon.
I think we shall become a proper, mint julep-drinking, group of pseudo-southerners. Okay, we’re such wannabes.
Fiddle Dee Dee. Cheers.
Keep it Classy. Keep it Country,
