Who is ready for that 30 second race? You know the one! The Kentucky Derby is coming right up. The cocktail of choice has to be the mint julep. If you have not made one before, it is so refreshing! I can see why it became the drink of the Derby on hot spring days in Kentucky. My mint is already growing like crazy in the garden, and my violas are still looking so pretty atop drinks and desserts, so why not? Find the recipe below for a standard mint julep. I add a twist of making a mint simple syrup. It is very easy and I promise it does not taste like toothpaste. Here is the game-changer: Blueberry ice cubes! So easy, and so fun and different. Wow your friends and families with this standout cocktail.
