Most of us have had a mint julep but I am willing to bet it was made with bourbon. This week I am sharing my favorite mint julep recipe, sub the bourbon and bring in the Chairman’s Reserve Rum! Chairman’s Legacy rum is the latest installment to the Chairman’s Reserve portfolio and tribute to the unforgettable Laurie Barnard, the last founding family member to hold the ”Chairman’s” position at St. Lucia distillers. In this post, I am sharing my favorite summer time, fresh rum mint julep recipe!
