The Kentucky Maid has quickly become one of my all time favorite cocktails. Its a refreshing, strong, and declicius libation well-suited for derby parties, picnics, and summer porch-front drinking.

Directions:

  1. Combine ingredients in a shaker tin and muddle.
  2. Shake with ice and dump entire mixture (with ice) into a large rocks glass.
  3. Garnish with a mint, cucumber, and add straw.

Enjoy!
