{friday cocktail: mint love julep}

I am still trying to come around to drinking and enjoying whiskey or bourbon based cocktails.  While there are a handful that I love (like this one or this one), my first preference remains gin for this time.  Since we will be viewing the derby tomorrow I feel I must be drinking some sort of cocktail out of a julep cup so I developed a little modified mint julep recipe to suit my tastes.  You can see my recipe for a classic mint julep right here if that's your thing. 


  1. So pretty :) I love anything gin, so this definitely wins!

  2. This sounds delish right about now! PS - I linked to your blog on my post today for my Friday's Lovely Links! Thanks for being so inspiring! TGIF!
