    Heck, it's a must have the day of the Kentucky Derby no matter WHERE you are! This year I was roaming around Market Street in downtown Charleston, SC with friends, and we passed by an open restaurant window when we heard the trumpets on their TV's. We rushed in, ordered Mint Juleps at the bar and stayed long enough to have a necessary cocktail and watch the horses! :)

    I like to "cook" the sugar and lemon juice in a small saucer before mixing. It ensures no bites of sugar and the heat makes the mint smell awesome.
