    mysticchyna's Note:

    This recipe is from Alton Brown and is the best Mint Julep I've had. It doesn't look like much, but it's very refreshing. The one thing I do is bash the mint and sugar in my mortar/pestle, instead of a glass.

      this is my "go to" recipe for mint juleps. i use a strainer with cheesecloth to get all the little mint bits out of the drink. i also add 1/2 ounce of orange liquor for personal preference.
