[FHCx151] National Mint Julep Day

Happy Memorial 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.
