Very Good

I just tryed the Maker's Mark Mint Julep and it is good, very smooth. I am on my way home from Florida and will be making a trip to Kentucky first to see if it is available.

I love Maker's and I'm curious to know how it tastes. Maybe a road trip is in order in May?

The best thing to do, essexgirl, is to make your own using Maker's Mark. If you're traveling through Kentucky before/near the Derby, Maker's Mark is all too available. It's a favorite in our house, but Woodford Reserve gets a big thumbs up, too.

I'm with you, Katie; make your own. Ditto on the Woodford--it's my favorite bourbon.

Good to know, Katie, thanks for the recommendation of Woodford Reserve. I am new to the whiskey world but seem to like bourban the best.

Absolutely. We don't even own a muddler and we always have mint juleps in our silver julep cups as we watch the Derby.
