“Mint Juleps are a refreshing and nutritious way to use up the abundance of mint in my heirloom mint garden!” Just kidding! Psy-ych!!!
But mint juleps are a refreshing and delicious way to use up all the whiskey in your liquor cabinet and your neighbor’s liquor cabinet if you aren’t careful. These shits are crazy good — and classy.
Drink them while playing bocce ball in your front yard; put on a big hat and some white shoes while you’re at it; once you’re good and drunk, get out a grammar book and teach yourself the proper uses of the semi-colon. That’s what I do.
- For each cocktail you will need:
- 8 ounce highball glass
- 4-5 mint leaves
- ½-1 teaspoon of sugar, or to taste
- crushed ice
- 2 ounces bourbon
- Put the mint and sugar in the bottom of the glass and muddle it around with a muddler, a spoon, or your cell phone (kidding) until the mint is bruised and battered.
- Add ½ ounce of bourbon and stir to dissolve the sugar.
- Pack the glass with crushed ice and top off with the remaining bourbon.
- Get HAMMERED.
And if that ain’t enough for you, try another great summer drink: The Pimm’s Cup!
