So refreshing! I've never tried a mint julep before, but I had kiwis & mint to use up so we had a little afternoon cocktail party. :) This drink was my personal favorite. Perfectly balanced between the sweet & sour and the fresh mint just put it over the top for me. Made as directed. Thanks for sharing, FN! DH & I enjoyed this very much (during naptime) after a morning in the park with 20 toddlers. :) Made & enjoyed for ZWT-5 - Ali Baba's Babes.
