Traditionally a Mint Julep is made with four ingredients: mint leaf, bourbon, sugar, and water, and has been the traditional drink for the The Kentucky Derby for nearly a century. Below is the recipe for this historic cocktail – that could easily become your signature wedding drink.

leaves from 4-5 mint sprigs
2 sugar cubes or 1/2 oz simple syrup
2 1/2 oz bourbon
mint sprig for garnish

Place the mint and simple syrup or sugar into the glass
Muddle well to dissolve the sugar and to release the oil and aroma of the mint
Add the bourbon
Fill with crushed ice and stir well until the glass becomes frosty
Garnish with the mint sprig just like seen below

    The keys are well spaced and provide comfortable travel, which
    results in an enjoyable typing experience. The Core i3 processors
    found in less expensive products are already more than
    sufficient for most tasks, so the Core i5 is aimed at those who want a
    laptop with substantial computing power. These additions
    will bring the total cost of the laptop to $959.
    Some things, however, are fairly universal in the search for the ideal laptop for your needs.
