How To Make A Mint Julep
Forest of mint growing already in the herb bed...
A long day filled with appointments...
Bottle of Eagle Rare bourbon in the cabinet...
This afternoon, all signs pointed to a Mint Julep. Here's how I make them:
Fill a low ball glass with a quarter cup or more fresh cleaned mint leaves.
Add a teaspoon of turbinado sugar.
Muddle well, then fill the glass with crushed ice.
Top it off with 2 - 4 ounces of high quality bourbon.
