Classic Mint Julep Recipe to Serve at Your Kentucky Derby Party
A few years back we turned on the Today Show to see the smiling face of Al Roker standing at Churchill Downs learning how to make a classic mint julep from Fred Noe, a seventh-generation distiller for Jim Beam. We think this might still be the best Mint Julep Recipe out there and we must admit, since then, we have spent many, many hours testing lots of other recipes. 🙂
