Three Weeks Early

The mint in the garden has reached the first harvesting stage so it had to be put to use.  We're also three weeks from the Kentucky Derby so practice was needed.  The julep is fresh mint muddled with some simple syrup, two ounces of Maker's Mark bourbon, and  shaken with some ice.  It was poured into an ice filled glass and garnished with a sprig of bruised mint. 

I love spring
