    Re: Mint Juleps for lunch

    I was on a mint julep kick for awhile, but with the advance planning required to properly concoct one, it wasn't long before I went back to beer and G&Ts. Still a good novelty drink though.

    Re: Mint Juleps for lunch

    I took about 50 mint leaves and soaked them in Templeton Rye overnight. Made some simple syrup(1 cup sugar & 1 cup distilled water, boiled), and added mint leaves to it. Also let set overnight. In the morning, I mixed the two together. Let sit for about 2 hours. Get out the tin, put shaved ice in half the cup, add mixture with another oz. of T-Rye. Add more shaved ice on top, sprinkle with powdered sugar.


    Mmmmmmmm

    Definitely not something you whip up on the fly. Takes time to get good things right.
