Mint Julep… because, you know, the Derby!

The Derby was supposed to be yesterday… howev because of #quarantine it was postponed to September 5.
But who says the mint juleps need to wait or be only for that day?! Let’s keep this party going…

Grab your fancy hat, your Bib & Tucker bourbon, and your mint… it’s cocktail time with Aunt Dawn!


To make this cocktail extra, AD added mint to her simple syrup and used crushed ice. Though mint juleps are traditionally served in a silver or pewter cup, any fancy glass will do. Cheers! -recipe and photos by Dawn Yorke

Crushed ice is important to help the ingredients meld. At home hack: Just use a meat tenderizer to crush cubes in a ziplock bag covered with a towel.
