The Mint Julep. The Kentucky Derby. Was there ever a more symbiotic relationship between event and cocktail? Some 100,000 of these Bourbon-based drinks are served as the Churchill Downs racetrack during horseracing's biggest week, and countless more are concocted and consumed at Derby parties across the country. Sadly, this refreshing elixir - as much a part of the Southern mystique as Faulkner, Tara or Stonewall Jackson - all too often goes into a year-long hibernation until the horses gather in the paddock once more. But why wait? The Mint Julep, which dates to the late eighteenth century, has no rivals if you want a sophisticated cocktail on a warm summer afternoon.
Bunch of fresh mint sprigs
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
Splash of water
1 1/2 ounce bourbon

Rub mint leaves around the inside of a cocktail glass, then place glass in the freezer for 30 minutes. In a small glass, gently muddle 2 or 3 mint leaves, superfine sugar, and a splash of water. Add Bourbon. Remove cocktail glass from the freezer and fill with crushed ice. Pour mixture over ice and stir until glass frosts. Garnish with sprigs of mint.
