Happy National Mint Julep Day!

Ohhh Mint Juleps. This is literally the last cocktail I want when I go on to glory. The cocktail that makes me want to start collecting cute silver cups. It literally as southern as you can get and I’m here for it. I love a restaurant that can make a good one, but most either make it too strong or too sweet. I have perfected it and I think you will enjoy! BTW you can also double this recipe up or make a pitcher of it for a party (or just for you)….enjoy!
