"Frose" Julep for Derby Day

While mint juleps are the drink of the day in Kentucky and beyond to celebrate Derby Day, we're honoring our semi-local ice cream maker Jeni's and their new Frose Sorbet, which we found to make an outstanding race day drink. We also tossed in Fugitives Spririts whiskey and Natchez Hills sparking wine which we had on hand. And of course fresh mint outside the kitchen door. Local at its best! 

The drink comes to us by way of Edible intern, Ann Walczak, who came to us with plenty of hospitality and mixology skills.  We look forward to many more summer beverages! Enjoy
