It’s Derby Day, have you figured out the odds and placed your bets yet? Or more importantly, have you figured out what drink you’ll be pouring at your Derby Party? Is it even a question?
Mint Julep via Chow.com3 Sprigs fresh mint 1 Teaspoon water 1 Teaspoon sugar 2 Ounces Bourbon (I’d recommend Maker’s Mark, but that’s just me)
Muddle 2 mint sprigs, the water, and the sugar in a highball or collins glass or a silver julep cup.
Fill the glass with crushed ice, and pour in the bourbon.
Garnish with the remaining mint sprig.
