Elarbee Media would like to help everyone get ready for their Derby Parties with a quick recap on the Mint Julep.Mint JulepBourbon whiskey - at least 3 fingers of GOOD Bourbon 
1 teaspoon powdered sugar or 1 finger of simple syrup
2 teaspoons Water
Mint leaves
In a highball glass (preferably a Derby glass like the ones in our collection) gently muddle the mint, sugar and water. Fill the glass with cracked ice, add Bourbon and stir well until the glass is well frosted.We can't say enough about the importance of a quality Bourbon, or the firm pack of the crushed ice. The Mint Julep is guaranteed to either help you celebrate when your horse wins, or give you solace is it loses. Bottoms Up!
