-Mint-juelp sampling guest at the GRAND yesterday
Thanks to everyone who joined us for the Shop & Sip at GRAND (the store) yesterday! Especially those who turned out in seersucker, sundresses and “say something” hats.
For those who missed the event but would like to mix some of these up at home, here’s the recipe. Sip one of these while you ruminate over which pony to put your money on next Saturday. For authentic julep cups to help make your Derby Day festivities as authentic as can be, stop by the Boston Shaker store at GRAND.
CLASSIC MINT JULEP
2 springs of mint
1 oz simple syrup
2 oz Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Pour simple syrup into a glass. Gently muddle one sprig of mint into the simple syrup, then remove mint.
Fill glass with crushed ice, then add Bourbon, top with more crushed ice, and stir.
Garnish with the fresh sprig of mint and enjoy!
