Cocktail O’Clock: Moonshine Mint Julep | EndlessSimmer.com

Is the Monday before the Kentucky Derby too early to start pouring mint juelps?

Me thinks not.

For today’s cocktail o’clock, here’s a modern spin on the MJ, made here with Ole Smoky Moonshine— a quintuple-distilled grain-neutral spirit that goes down, dare I say it, smoother than bourbon.

1 fresh mint sprig
Lime Garnish
