Refreshing Mint Juleps « Minced

August 11, 2009

Chanced upon a great-looking recipe for a Mint Julep over on Minced. It’s worth it both for the recipe and the first comment.
But our mint’s gone to flower. Still worthy of juleps? Worth a try!

    i saw the post on minced too…! a julep sounds perfect right now… too bad i don’t have any mint to make any simple syrup with – not that i didn’t plant any… it’s either the crappy soil or the water that killed it crispiness, and it’s in a container for pete’s sake! come on, how can i not grow mint here…? grrr…

      Dude…serious bummer. In EPTX, my mom always had some growing under the water spigot outside, but it also got afternoon shade. Is it the builder’s topsoil that’s so bad? Cause aren’t you like in ag central?!!!

        ag central… now that’s an understatement. no, the mint is actually in a container… i’m wondering if there was some ‘bonus’ fertilizer in the soil mix i planted it in. nothing like adding high sodium water to fertilized soil…
        won’t you pass the pepper please?

    I can empathize. I was doubting that I had any gardening skills because a mint I planted a year ago was more stem than leaf, always on the verge of going to the big mint julep in the sky. But repotting, combined with lots more water I’m used to giving anything in a pot, has finally brought it back to life. Hmmm, I think that there’s finally enough plant to make some juleps…

    not a huge fan of them, but the summer is passing and I have not had a gin and tonic… may just be thrown ot of the Episcopal church.

      WHAT? I suppose, on antibiotics, you shouldn’t, but that’s a real shame…
