Frozen Mint Julep

Categories: CocktailsTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , Author:

You could also call this a semi-homemade julep. We realized that we didn’t have enough spearmint for the drinks, so we substituted the herb for a couple of drops of mint concentrate. (Make sure you’re extremely careful when pouring the concentrate…it’s really strong.) We added a good amount of one of our favorite bourbons, Woodford Reserve, for a very delicious drink!

Makes 2 cocktails

  • 8 oz of Woodford Reserve
  • 2 cups of crushed ice
  • 2 tbsp of granulated sugar
  • A few drops of mint concentrate
  • spearmint for garnish

Put all of the ingredients into a blender (or smoothie maker) and blend at high speed for a couple of minutes or until all the sugar has dissolved. Pour over a highball and garnish with spearmint. Enjoy the races today!

Categories: Cocktails, FeaturedTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , Author:

Our obsession with Kentucky Bourbon continues this week. Today we’re making a low cal iced tea/lemonade that packs a punch, the KITL (like Skittles). The drink reminds us of the great time we had in Louisville last summer… or at least, what we managed to remember of it!

Makes 2 cocktails

  • 4 oz of Marker’s Mark
  • 2 oz of Grand Marnier
  • 1 cup of Turkey Hill diet iced tea
  • 1 cup of Tropicana Light Lemonade
  • Lemons slices for garnish

Fill a large glass with ice and pour all the liquid ingredients and stir. Garnish with a slice of lemon and enjoy!
