If someone offered me a mint julep that was "solid," I'd wonder if they'd maybe overdone it with the mint, just a little bit.

Snarf's Best Mint Julep

4 oz. Widow Jane 10 year bourbon
3 oz mint simple syrup (see below)
fresh mint leaves
crushed ice
cold water

Start by preparing the mint simple syrup. Mix water, sugar, and copious amounts of chopped mint and heat in saucepan until sugar is dissolved. Strain out mint leaves. Allow to cool.

Take large glass. Fill with 4 ounces of fine bourbon. Widow Jane 10 yr is a fine choice, but Maker's Mark will do in a pinch and on a budget. Drop in a minuscule splash of cold water to release additional flavor.

Drink while looking at the mint simple syrup, glad it did not sully your precious bourbon. Occasionally hurl crushed ice at people because it's funny.

Repeat as necessary.

Maker's Mark is my 'mixing bourbon,' the stuff I like to put in my mint julep, whiskey sour, or other cocktails. It has a smooth, smoky flavor, it mixes well, and it doesn't cost a fortune.

My favorite 'sipping bourbon' is Black Maple Hill. But since it's almost impossible to find (and even harder to afford) nowadays, Angel's Envy will do in a pinch. The only thing I mix it with is an ice cube.

It continues to be a metaphor, you see. Can you spot the Spelljammer reference in these photos?

Here's my family recipe for lasagna.

SUMMERTIME LASAGNA
====================
2 oz. Maker's Mark bourbon
1 teaspoon coarse raw sugar
fresh peppermint leaves
crushed ice
cold water

Muddle the sugar and 4 large mint leaves together in an 8-oz highball glass. Fill with crushed ice, then add the bourbon. Top off with water, if desired (or a little extra bourbon, if that's how you roll). Then stir slowly until the glass is well frosted. Garnish with a sprig of mint, and serve.

Actually, that's the family recipe for a mint julep. But I hear it's pretty much the same thing.
Reminds me about a comedy bit I heard when I was a kid. Something about the kids not getting to sleep at Christmas but not to worry, 'cause Pa always had them rum popsicles in the freezer. Wish I could find a recording of it.

If I'm just going to sip something, it'll probably be one of Barrell's products, over a large ice sphere; I can appreciate the gradual opening-up of the flavors as the liquid in the glass asymptotically approaches water.

Two things-

1. That third bourbon pictured would go well in a John Collins.

2. Many people argue about the best way to drink bourbon, scotch, or whisk(e)y. Some say it's on the rocks. Some say it's neat. Some say it's with a splash of water. Obviously, there is only ONE CORRECT WAY. Discuss! ;)

I'm guessing that a) it's Bill Cosby, and b) you don't want to find it.

For those trying (struggling?) to follow this thread:
  • Pizza is a metaphor for D&D campaigns.
  • Pineapple is a metaphor for bards, gnomes, THAC0, basically any specific game element thing that is a niche acquired taste. Often used in conjunction with the aforementioned "pizza" metaphor.
  • How someone prefers to drink bourbon is a metaphor for how someone prefers to play D&D.
  • New Zealand is a confused place, much like the American south.
We now return to your regularly-scheduled tomfoolery and shenanigans.
