Mint julep was invented to be enjoyed on a balmy summer evening, sitting on a whitewashed porch in a rocking chair with little children frolicking in the yard and catching fireflies in wide mouth Mason jars and Chevy Chase singing zippedy doo dah, but it's January, and it's about 1:00 in the afternoon, Chevy Chase is still asleep. [MUSIC] All right, here's what you need, whiskey, delicious, fresh mint, beautiful, sugar cubes, adorable, ice, crushed, spoon, shiny, something to muddle with, wood, and a glass, high ball. All right, step one, sugar cube in the glass, it's so adorable, get a sprig of mint, tear off maybe 12 leaves, throw it in yo' cup, 8, 12, 13, what the hell. All right, put in just a teeny, little bit of booze to sort of moisten the sugar cube, wooo, and then get your muddling utensil, and break up that sugar cube with the mint, the abrasiveness of the sugar is going to help break up the mint a little bit, and it will help release its oils which is what you want and just keep mixing that around until the sugar is dissolved and your mint will start to look kind of brown and stuff, but it's delicious, so just trust me, okay? All right, looking good, put in ice to the top of your glass, crushed, and then pour in some booze. A little stir, get it chilled, it's very important, get that ice working, it's ice magic and making things cold. Delicious. Mmmmm. It's really good. It's potent. It's pretty much straight booze, and it goes down a lot smoother than you probably wish it will. So try it out. After you have had like three or four and you start messing around on the computer when you're home alone drinking by yourself, look on Facebook, look up Hilah Cooking, be my fan. We could chat because I am probably on there too, getting drunk and chatting with people and making comments I shouldn't.
