Mint Julep at

In an alcoholic haze we continue our trials of classic cocktails. As it is really  hot here, we went for Mint Juleps.

This is an excellent cocktail for a hot day. It is icy cold, minty and has a good whisky flavour. You need to try these.

I have not done my usual description of making it as we did a video!

Have a look and give it a try.

  1. It looks refreshing. Will have to try it when Bob brings back the whiskey with him from Sask. Hopefully he hasn’t drunk it all.

    1. They are very tasty. However, they go down very easily on a hot day and there is 2 ounces of whiskey in each one so be careful.

    1. Thanks, Sam. My buddy and I are having a lot of fun doing them. I guess that speaks to my lack of sobriety.
