    Smile So, What Bourbon's Going In Your Mint Julep On Derby Day?

    My mint is coming up in the garden, time for a couple of Derby Mint Juleps tomorrow! Cracking a bottle of Sam Houston 10yr for mine, what's going in yours?

    I think good ole BT, any standard 4r, or Old Forester might do it for me. Barton doesn't sound half bad either.

    I've been liberally using a handle of dusty I.W. Harper for mint juleps since I picked it up a couple weeks ago. Will is meet its end soon?

    Haven't tried mixing my own yet so I will be drinking Early Times Mint Julep.

    All my mint died, so it's off to the grocery store for some more... Will probably use Makers in mine. It'll be about 7am Sunday when the Derby runs, so I might be making mine a bit belatedly

    Taking a bottle of WR with the Derby label on it to some friends hosting a Derby party. Don't know if they will crack it or keep it. Also taking some standard BT for the back up bottle in case they don't want to open the WR. May try to finish up the last of the BTEC rice bourbon as well. Better as a mixer than a sipper anyway.

    Larceny, back up will likely be Weller 107. We're going to be making a few Juleps tomorrow.
