Mint Julep

A refreshing mint julep may be just the thing to celebrate this weekend's Derby day or to bring a little Southern charm to any gathering.

Here's a recipe from Epicurious on that minty fresh delight:

  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) club soda
  • 2 heaping teaspoons superfine sugar
  • 15 fresh mint leaves, plus 5 small sprigs for garnish
  • 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) Bernheim or other high-quality whiskey
  • 2 cups crushed ice

In julep cup, stir together club soda and sugar until sugar just begins to dissolve. Add mint leaves and, using glass muddler or back of large spoon, gently press leaves into sugar syrup until slightly darkened but not completely crushed. Add whiskey, then fill cup with crushed ice and, using long spoon, stir briefly. Tuck mint sprigs into top of cup and insert short straw.

Of course, if you want to look evening beautiful, a little candlelight will do the trick (wink, wink).
