bite my julep!

i feel the first wave of wishing to slow the pace a bit
pondered a mint julep
just can't leave well enough alone
had to mix it up
after all recipes are merely suggestions as far as i am concerned
mint
bourbon
mint mint mint
simple syrup
sip
test
too wimpy

mint mint
bourbon
sip
test
almost there!

bourbon
bourbon
ice
sip test
ohhh!
yeah baby - there she blows!
still needs a bite

ginger
a bit more sugar
ginger
ooooooo - k
genius!

yeah yeah
i know what you are thinking
ginger is not officially in the recipe
don't get all twisted up about it - we'll call it a new drink
hush up already
ginger mint julep
nah, not sassy enough

julep with a bite?
nope - too literal

"bite my julep"

better than the original
that's for sure

hey next time i plan to throw a cucumber in the mix
don't say i did not warn ya.
eh, a girl's got to have fun every once in a while

note - hide your car keys from yourself before trying this at home...
