(Not me pictured)

I don't really need an excuse to put bourbon in a glass and gulp it down, but it helps to have an excuse to wear a gigantic, frilly hat. The Kentucky Derby is just that for me.

My family loves horse racing, any excuse to gamble away our life savings, and the Derby is no exception. So for you, fair reader, today Mandy and I are providing the Girls Gone Sports Mint Julep recipe, sure to get you wasted while you watch the ponies. And because we are such lovely and providing bloggers we also have a link for you to bet on the "Fastest Two Minutes in Sports" (funny, I thought that was Ashley Cole's nickname for how fast he was in the sack) for some good ole fashion betting away your daughter's college fund on the Derby.

GGS Mint Julep

2 cups sugar
2 cups water
Sprigs of fresh mint
Crushed ice
Bottle of Barbaro Maker's Mark Bourbon (or any cheap bottle you can find)
2 Large glasses, preferably metal ones so they get really freakin' cold (Just get 2 large cocktail shakers, that'll do just fine)
Make syrup by boiling the water and sugar together for about 5 minutes. Let the syrup cool and place it in a container with a lid. Add in mint leaves, whole and crushed, and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Make both of your Juleps, one at a time, by filling your large cocktail shaker with crushed ice, add in 2 tablespoons of the mint syrup and as much bourbon as it takes to fill the shaker to the top. Garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy!

    I really hope that lady was drunk when she bought that hat.

    No, no no no no no no.

    Maker's Mark is the very least of the bourbons you should use. Cheap bourbon in this situation is gonna make you...ugh. Evil Badness. Use the best bourbon you can afford. You're basically taking it with mint and sugar.

    Unless you're really poor, in which case, whatevers.

    Love y'all.
