Happy Kentucky Derby Day!

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:

3-4 mint leaves
4 tsp powdered sugar
3 oz bourbon whiskey
club soda

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.
