The Mint Julep #CraftedForHome April 04 2015

To celebrate opening day of Keeneland, Laura and I decided to search for the best Mint Julep in Lexington, KY. After our first recommendation failed due to restaurant hours, it also was 11:45am, Google took us to a place right outside of downtown Lexington called, The Julep Cup. If you are a fan of bourbon, this drink is a great choice. Easy recipe, simple ingredients. This spring time spirit is #CraftedForHome

The Mint Julep:

2.5 oz - Woodford Reserve Bourbon

20 - Organic Mint Leaves

1 oz - Simple Syrup

Crushed Ice  

Bar Suggestion: Muddle mint leaves in the simple syrup & in the bottom of the pewter cup
