Derby Day Mint Juleps

Tom Dempsey’s Mint Julep Recipe
3-5 mint leaves
1t Powdered Sugar
2t Water
2 - 2 ½ oz. Woodford Reserve Bourbon
Crushed Ice

Muddle (stir/gentle crush) four mint springs and sugar in the bottom of a julep glass. Add water, continuing to muddle contents to a paste. Add Woodford Reserve Bourbon. Pack the julep glass with crushed ice. Garnish with a mint spring for and don’t forget the sipping straw.

If a metal julep cup is used, be sure to use a wooden muddler (bottom of a wooden spoon) instead of metal spoon to eliminate the possibility of scratching your julep cup.
