Celebrate Kentucky Derby with Fresh Lemon Mint Juleps

img_18921

Since the Kentucky Derby is this weekend, I thought I would create the ideal springtime mint julep. My version is slightly different, made with fresh lemon juice and agave nectar. It’s traditionally served in an iced silver or pewter mug during the Kentucky Derby, but any glass is fine when it tastes this good (and I promise you, it’s fabulous). I used Gentleman Jack which is one of my favorite bourbons, but feel free to use your favorite. Enjoy a taste of Kentucky with every sip of this fresh drink.
