Mint Julep

Mint Julep created by Amanda Gryphon

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.

    Delicious to be sure but it’s hilarious to a Kentuckian that Gentleman Jack is called a Kentucky bourbon
