Sorry, lady, but that is definitely not a Mint Julep.

Years ago, I shared with you all a video from yet another bartending school or something that showed the most horrific excuse for a Mint Julep many of you have ever seen. It’s so bad that I’m honestly surprised that Woodford Reserve hasn’t bothered to have the video taken down. You can watch it here:

Anyway, as part of my continuing work with the Small Screen Network, I’ve put together my rebuttal and a quick demonstration of what I think a proper mint julep should be. Seems like a lot of people liked the last one, so I hope this one is just as satisfying. Go ahead and watch the video here.

    Sir Jeffrey.
    When are you going to update your website? Please do it soon.

    p.s. i’ve been using a 3:5 sour mix to bourbon ratio at the local Hooters establishment that I run and people have been raving about it… but sometimes I question the quality of mint that we are using. We get our mint from a can, which comes in a sort of mint-soup sauce from Sysco, and I was wondering if it might be worth-while/cost-effective to possibly just going frozen mint on our Juleps there??-as Julep’s are basically a frozen drink.

    anyways… i love the pictures on your website–they are super cool!

    Omg I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. That’s the most appalling thing I’ve ever seen since my “bartender” added Jack Daniels in my friend’s Long Island. What a bawstardisation of such good bourbon.

    I like when a cocktail comes with a whole tree as a garnish, makes me feel special.
    I also noticed the 2-step lime cordial pour, gonna keep that and make it my new signature move.
