Whiskey Wednesday – Mint Julep Cocktail Recipe

Whiskey Wednesday – Mint Julep Cocktail Recipe

I grabbed myself a little mint plant to nurture and raise in my growing herb garden in my kitchen, so when I was mulling over ideas for this week’s Whiskey Wednesday, I knew I had to involve my new mint.

Well what better whiskey drink with mint than the classic Mint Julep? Although, after raising and nurturing the mint plant to life in this dismal, sunless weather, I felt awful when I had to pluck and beat up the leaves. But oh jeez, I no long felt bad when I had a sip of the final product.

And I finally found a reason to use the last of my Woodford Reserve. I had been clinging to these last few ounces for a few weeks now. I don’t even know why… Whiskey is meant to be enjoyed, thoroughly and regularly.

And may I preface with a story, before any whiskey connoisseurs get all up in arms when they see the glass I’m using for a Julep….

I found these adorable tea glasses on Amazon. I absolutely fell in love and have been using them every chance I get. The beauty of them is they are double-walled, shielding your hands from the heat or cold of the beverage. And it’s rather cold tonight, so I’d rather not freeze my hands with an icy glass. So I’m using — and thoroughly enjoying — them for my Mint Juleps tonight.

For your own Mint Julep, feel free to use a real julep glass or otherwise, a tall glass.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
    was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!
