The 141st Kentucky Derby is merely days away!
Throw a bash in superior Southern-Style this Saturday, May 2nd, 2015.
Bring on derby décor, traditional attire, and hello, WHO could forget the Mint Juleps?!
So spike the punch, place your best bet, and let the races begin!
We love these equestrian themed wine stoppers!
6 to 8 mint leaves
1 tablespoon sugar
2 1/2 ounces bourbon
Splash Simple Syrup, recipe follows
Sprig mint, for garnish
Put the mint leaves and the sugar in the bottom of glass. With the handle of a wooden spoon, muddle the leaves to extract flavor. Fill the glass with small crushed ice. Pour in the bourbon. Top with a splash of simple syrup.
With a long-handled spoon, jiggle to mix and chill. Add a sprig of mint for garnish!
Eat! Drink! And enjoy the 141st Kentucky Derby!
