I love this description of how to make a traditional mint julep, and if you consider yourself a purist, I recommend that you heed the writer’s advice. But this version is the version that I actually prefer to drink. Extra frosty, extra minty, with no annoying mint bits in the teeth – and it’s easy to make a pitcher using the same basic proportions.

Very few men really appreciate the joys of fizzy wine, chocolates that come in heart shaped boxes, and wearing pink and red things.
So though I am suggesting pink drinks for lovers, in my heart I know, I mostly drink these with my friends.
