I'll drink to that

I read on the Sierra Club's website that Maker's Mark bourbon is using waste products to produce 15 to 30% of their energy, a huge environmental savings. Can it get any easier to support eco-friendly companies?!

I've never had a mint julep, but I guess I could force myself for a good cause:

Crush mint leaves in bottom of glass
Add 1 teaspoon powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons water
Fill glass with crushed ice
Pour 2 1/2 ounces bourbon (Maker's Mark, of course) over the ice
Stir, garnish with mint and enjoy

Love those adult beverages!! At least Maker's Mark is using waste products for their energy not for their bourbon!Hee Hee
