How to make: Makes One Strong Julep (recipe from the Derby’s bartender) Take out that sweet tea pitcher and make up a big batch!

Cool and place in a covered container with 8 mint sprigs.
Fill a silver julep with crushed ice. (for those of us who don’t have silver julep mugs hey! Tastes great in a regular glass.)

Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
