Last night the BF and I went for a nightcap at a favorite neighborhood spot, Church. In spite of the polar vortex happening outside, I was in the mood for something light and refreshing. I ended up ordering a Mint Julep, the official drink of the Kentucky Derby as well as the very antithesis of winter. Although I will say I was disappointed my drink didn’t come in a silver beaded cup. Below are some Julep-y inspirations:
I especially love some of these delicious-looking modified Mint Juleps: Sparkling Blackberry Mint Julep, Pomegranate Cranberry Mint Julep, Blueberry Mint Juleps from one of my favorite bloggers How Sweet It Is, and Grilled Watermelon Mint Julep. How ready for spring are you now?
