Forever a fan of the Run for the Roses...horses, hats and mint juleps!
Here's a favorite recipe for the official mint julep of the Kentucky Derby:
Combine sugar and water and bring to a boil. Let simmer for 10 minutes until thick and clear. While hot, stir in (1) bunch of mint sprigs. Let cool. Then strain the syrup into a small container and discard the mint.
When ready, pour (2) ounces (1/4 cup) whiskey and (2) ounces of syrup into each ice filled, frosted cup. Add a sprig of mint (and for fun, a cute striped straw to match your jockey's colors!)
