Make this Twisted Mint Julep, a favorite cocktail of fans of the Kentucky Derby.Years ago a friend of mine told me that he holds a party every year with just his brothers to watch the Kentucky Derby.  I was rather surprised that one would actually hold a party to watch the a horse race.  But then again, back then I had never watched it myself.

But not to worry, I already had my Kentucky Derby party and cheered them on in advance with my Twisted Mint Julep cocktail.  It’s a classic Southern cocktail with a twist for fun.  The classic cocktail is a favorite of those attending the Kentucky Derby.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
