Warning: These are so good, you might drink half your drink before taking a picture. 

My cousin is the cocktail queen. 

When we got together a few weeks ago on Derby Day, I charged her with making Mint Juleps. It doesn't matter if this girl has made a drink before or not, she will figure it out and make it amazing.

Repeat after me: All hail the queen.

And, as I mentioned in my post about that weekend, she came through with flying colors. Since then, a few readers have asked me for the recipe.

I recently found a large amount of fresh mint growing in my new backyard (thanks, previous owners!), so there is really no excuse to not throw together a mint julep on a hot afternoon. Thanks, Clara!
