Classic Mint Juleps
These traditional mint juleps are a staple in the South--especially for the Kentucky Derby. Whip them up at home with this easy recipe.
Tip: Bartenders swear by superfine sugar for cocktails because it dissolves almost instantly. You can find superfine sugar in the baking section of most supermarkets, but you can make your own by whirling granulated sugar in a blender or food processor for 1 minute until it is as fine as sand. After you stop the machine, let the sugar settle for a few minutes before removing the lid to avoid a cloud of sugar dust.
