A wonderful southern drink! These were served at my friend Anna's wedding and I really enjoyed it.I never really cared for bourbon until I had this drink!

Perfect for our Derby Dinner party! I've never had a mint julep so I don't have anything to compare this against, but it sounds accurate enough!

This was just perfect for us on Derby Day today. I used fresh mint from the garden and we are on our second round now... Thanks!!

This was not my favorite drink. I thought it tasted like watered down bourbon.
