As a Kentuckian, gotta tell ya this is not a traditional mint julep. I like my mint juleps without the mint or the simple syrup, that is to say, I just drink the bourbon on the rocks!

Rather innovative to use a coffee can to mix this. Large enough to do the job since not everybody has a punch bowl. Besides, Karen can call this whatever she wants since it's her recipe. Some people, me included, can't have or don't like whiskey. Seems like suitable substitute to me.<br><br>Thanks for sharing.

Interesting....made something simliar to this years ago without the sugar....we called it a strip and go naked...

sorry but that sounds terrible and NOTHING like a mint julep. Not an appropriate name at all!

If they're not made with Kentucky bourbon, they're not mint juleps. And where does vodka come in cans?

I didn't know vodka came in cans! Thanks
