Happy Beltane/May Day/Derby Day to everyone!
To assist you in your traditional enjoyment of the day, I offer the following recipe:
Orginal 1912 Mint Julep
3-4 mint leaves
4 tsp powdered sugar
3 oz bourbon whiskey
Place mint in glass with powdered sugar and 1/2oz bourbon and “muddle” into a paste with wooden muddler.
Fill with ice and remainder (2 1/2 oz) of Bourbon then fill with club soda (not tap water).
Serve in a Collins Glass or Julip Glass (Julip glasses are those metal ones).
