We decided not to have the mint juleps WITH the crab tacos so we made our mint julep for the watching of the Kentucky Derby (about to start here in a few minutes).
We used this original mint julep recipe from 1912:
4 tsp powdered sugar
3 oz bourbon whiskey
Place mint in glass with powdered sugar and 1/2oz bourbon and muddle into a paste. Fill with ice and remainder (2 1/2 oz) of bourbon then fill with club soda. Serve in a collins glass or julep glass.
