apple julep

The Kentucky Derby is held annually in Louisville, Kentucky on the first Saturday of May, which means that everybody and their brother enjoyed Mint Juleps last weekend. There’s a long and storied history behind the Mint Julep – it’s preparation, and it’s relationship to the Kentucky Derby – on Wikipedia, so I won’t bore you with it here. I’m not going to share the recipe for a Mint Julep anyway; instead, I would like to share a refreshing and creative adaptation called an Apple Julep.  
Apple Julep is refreshing and light, perfect for young and old alike.  A unique and special drink for your next gathering. It's best served over chipped ice . . . and enjoyed under a big old shade tree with friends.  

Here’s what you’re going to need . . .
1 qt. apple juice
1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice

Stir together apple juice, pineapple juice, orange juice, and lemon juice. Serve over crushed ice, and garnish with apple slices, lemon slices, and fresh mint sprigs.
