First, Mabel’s mixologists fill the bottom of a traditional silver or pewter cup with crushed ice. Then they muddle four mint sprigs with a bar-spoon of sugar and add a bit more ice so the cup’s about one-quarter full. They stir until the sugar dissolves and add 2 ounces Woodford Reserve whiskey. More ice is added until the glass is three-quarters full; the drink is then stirred until the glass is cold and frosted. Next, the bartenders pack crushed ice on top until the glass is completely full and garnish with two mint sprigs.
During the party, mint juleps will be specially priced at $9. Now that’s a thoroughbred of a deal.
