Derby Day Step 2 – Trial 1

Derby Day Step 2 – Trial 1

After 1 day of infusing, I tried a mint julep with the bourbon infused with pecans.

The julep making is simple:

  • 4-5 mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon Maguey Sweet Sap or light molasses
  • 2 – 2 1/2 ounces pecan infused bourbon
  • Lots of ice

Muddle the leaves in a tall glass, then add the Maguey Sweet Sap. Put a layer or two of cheese cloth over the top of the glass and slowly pour the bourbon and pecans into the glass, keeping the pecan pieces in the cheesecloth. You may be tempted to put this in your mouth… Ok, go ahead if you want! Or just remove the pecan pieces, add a lot of ice and stir well, until the glass gets a layer of condensation on it. Add a small sprig of mint to the top and enjoy!

I guess I'm a bit of a foodie, learning to cook from my mom, then getting obsessed with outdoor cooking, competition barbecue, bread baking and just about all things food. Lately, I've been trying to upgrade my photography skills a bit, though I still have a long way to go.
