mintjulep Don’t act like you haven’t already started drinking.

For our inaugural Wednesday Evening Cocktail, we’re going with a classic, the mint julep. Many thanks to for the recipe:

  • 1 part Knob Creek Bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • Finely crushed ice
  • Fresh mint, washed and patted dry

In a highball glass, dissolve the sugar in two teaspoons of water. Fill the glass with crushed ice, and add the Knob Creek Bourbon. Stir contents until the glass becomes frosty, adding more ice if necessary. Use the straw to push stemless mint leaves into the chilled julep mix for added flavor. Garnish with sprigs of mint.

LOVE your site, but I gotta tell you mint juleps are hella nasty. I wanted one when I was in Kentucky because when in Kentucky you might as well drink like the hicks, you know?

Massive mistake. Bourbon headaches are not fun, especially when you have an early meeting.

To be honest, McB, I’m not even sure I’ve ever had a mint julep, although I do vaguely remember drinking something containing Wild Turkey and some kind of leafy detritus in college.

Anyhow, I promise this week’s recipe will be better–Maybe an Obama Slamma, in honor of the election? Or Metamucil shooters, for McCain.
