jake_lex: fark mint juleps. They are a disgusting waste of good bourbon.Just drink the bourbon on its own, or maybe mix it with some coke. Mint juleps are shiatty drinks for tourists.
Nabb1: jake_lex: fark mint juleps. They are a disgusting waste of good bourbon.Just drink the bourbon on its own, or maybe mix it with some coke. Mint juleps are shiatty drinks for tourists.My father-in-law, who is from Kentucky and is a bourbon connoisseur, enjoys them on Derby Day. I fail to see how you can talk about "wasting good bourbon in one breath and then advocate mixing it with Coke in the next breath. A properly made mint julep with fresh mint, good bourbon, shaved ice, in julep cups, is a fine drink, and much better than dumping any quality bourbon into Coke. If I caught someone pouring my good bourbon into Coke, I'd throw them out of my house.
jw1987: The only thing I care about when Derby day rolls around is photographing the Derby trains that show up:[farm8.staticflickr.com image 500x367]Don't really care much about the race, I might watch it on TV, but that's about it.

Redheaded Stepchild: So what's the deal with giving horses ridiculous names? Is there a purpose behind it, or is this just the type of thing that amuses the blue bloods?
paj: Actual race time is?
WhyteRaven74: paj: Actual race time is?6:24 PM EST
plastic_cow: I will combine the Derby and Cinco, no mint juleps, but mojitos will be the norm for me.
paj: Thanks. :)

TheShavingofOccam123: I like a good bourbon sour. To make a good one, you have to slowly pour the Bartender's Mix out of the envelope.
