I’ve mentioned previously that we have copious amounts of mint growing in our backyard and we are always looking for excuses to trim it up some. Well, Tuesday night there was a special about the Kentucky Derby on tv while I was preparing dinner and a segment dedicated to the mint julep highlighted a particular brand that is the official bourbon of the Kentucky Derby, Woodford Reserve.
I thought to myself, hmm, that looks familiar.
It turns out that we have a full bottle of the stuff (unbeknownst to me) thanks to my dad’s generous shopping spree last Thanksgiving. So, in honor of the Kentucky Derby this Saturday, I made myself a mint julep last night…
…let’s just say it’s not for me.
I hope Eric enjoys bourbon.
