Oh my God this is so awesome I want to die. Andrea from Brooks Nightclub and Whatever had me totally captivated for, like, a whole fifteen seconds – right up until the part where she says that a “Mint Julep is like a Mojito, but with bourbon”

That’s when the Rose’s Lime Juice started happening and I fell backwards in my chair from laughing. Check out this totally awesome video, but whatever you do, don’t ever make this drink.


1 lime, quartered
2 sprigs wilted mint
1 ounce Rose’s lime juice
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
2 ounces canned sour mix
4 ounces Sprite
1.5 ounces Woodford Reserve Bourbon

Awesome. Now, if you’d like to watch my rebuttal, check the Small Screen Network video below:

    She doesn’t even know how to shake a drink. The glass was to the customers side it should be the metal size.

  • Maxwell says:

    I’m surprised no-one has noticed that this is actually the drink she intended. She doesn’t want it to taste good she’s just pissed at her wages, or her boyfriend left her, or her cat got run over or something.

    You can tell by the way she say’s “Enjoy” at the end. It’s a dare.

    Wow… I’m sorry, but honestly… The girl wasn’t THAT good looking… Sure, she had em, and you could certainly see em, but really?

    I’ve seen much nicer girls making much better drinks… I wouldn’t touch her with the wrong end of a muddler.

    Wow! As a Kentuckian this is amazing… I couldn’t even watch just read the ingredients list and knew there were issues.

    Mint Julep

    2 parts bourbon
    1 part mint-infused simple syrup (1:1 water to sugar)

    combine over crushed ice & stir.

    Serve in a silver julep glass if available (although my last batch were enjoyed just fine in small blue solo cups at a tailgate) garnish with a sprig of mint “slapped” in the palm of your hand to release the mint essence.

    drink, enjoy, repeat

    That background music…just amazing. It really made me feel like I was in the backwoods of Kentucky while they made this drink.

  • At first I thought this was really funny. I read all the comments and couldn’t stop laughing. I also felt sorry for the poor girl, having it taken out of her like that.

    Then I watched the video. I was horrified. It made me want to run to the window and throw myself out. I cried real tears. There should be punishment for people who do this to cocktails. Drinks have feelings too. Cruel and improper treatment should be severely banned.

    This just makes me angry. Like, legitimately angry. A) not a julep B) even with rum, that sounds like a shitty mojito. ANGRY.
