Having an impromptu Run for the Roses party this weekend? You should! And here is the classic recipe served for all derby day events: the Mint Julep. I can’t believe I have avoided making this drink for so long; I expected it to be complicated. But it is simple to make, and while the flavors are subtle the bourbon is strong.
Classic Mint Julep: 1 ounce minted simple syrup 2 cups crushed ice 2 ounces bourbon (I used Knob Creek.) Garnish with fresh sprig of mint. A little tip: Use the leftover simple syrup to sweeten non-alcoholic drinks like iced tea
Our Color Seeded Glass Tumblers and Candleholders are the perfect portion for serving mint juleps or any party drink. Another little tip: Chilling your glasses keeps your drinks fresh for longer!
Wisteria certainly would not be what it is today without the inspiration of our mothers. Our moms invested decades of effort, almost without our noticing, in finding, winnowing, and polishing the mix of things that have shaped our families’ lives and our own ideas of what our house might be like. As we grew older, we wanted our own home as well as Wisteria to be a reflection of our mothers’ influence. We hope we’ve done just that. Happy Mother’s Day!
