Happy Memorial Day!
IT’S NATIONAL MINT JULEP DAY!
Mint Julep was one of those alcoholic beverages that we knew very little about. Hey! I see you there, judging us! Stop thinking that we’re party-poopers just because we aren’t alcoholics!
AK figured that it was basically lemonade but mint instead of lemon. SP thought it involved gin of some sort and that old, rich people in the South drank it. They’re kind of right. Basically, it’s a mojito with bourbon instead of rum. Hooray, Kentucky. We used Wikipedia’s Recipe.
Big surprise: it wasn’t our favorite. We’re sure you bourbon-lovers out there would really enjoy it, though!
Tomorrow is National Macaroon Day. Macaron? Macaroon?
