Oh, I forgot!

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
club soda

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).
