How to make Mint Juleps

How to make Mint Juleps

Republished from April 2010 This weekend is the Kentucky Derby, and last weekend was the Atlanta Steeplechase.  To me, this season means Mint Juleps, a refreshing minty alcoholic drink.  Easy to prepare, although it does take some prep time. One day in advance make the Mint Simple Syrup and refrigerate. The day of the race, mix up the mint juleps and enjoy! By the way – my money is on Paddy O’Pra…

Strawberry Vodka

Strawberry Vodka

I never need to go to a bar again (I never really wanted to go to a bar anyway). Just give me a bunch of great people, games, and potluck. Oh, and a little booze is nice too. I infused strawberry into vodka and bottled it into small flasks. I’m a lightweight and even I could drink this straight. Ok, I only had a few sips but I didn’t make that ugly this-alcohol-is-strong face. I can’t wait to try other infusions… I’m t…

This recipe is really amazing and fast to cook, considering the fact that button mushrooms contain 17 different vitamins, the benefits from this dish increase dramatically.

Baked Brie

My brother’s wife is a vegetarian, so their wedding reception (just six weeks after mine!) was meat-free. Where our cocktail hour had choices for carnivores and herbivores alike, theirs featured a delightful selection of fruits, ve…
