If you cannot make it to the Derby this year, enjoy a Derby tradition at home: the Mint Julep. This way you won't have to buy one of those big hats! Enjoy in moderation!


Place mint leaves, sugar and a splash of water into a silver julep glass or a 12-ounce
Tom Collins glass. 

Muddle the mint, sugar, and water together with the handle of a
wooden spoon. Fill the glass with shaved ice, add the bourbon and stir until combined.

Garnish with a lemon or orange slice, a cherry and a few sprigs of mint.
