Whiskey Wednesday: Mint Julep Recipe

    The mint julep is a beloved southern tradition linked most famously to the Kentucky Derby. It may be too late for partaking of Derby fun, but with that race's winner and local champ California Chrome now competing for a Triple Crown, we at THREAD are still eager to beat the heat with this undeniable (and easy!) summer classic. This recipe yields two servings. Multiply or divide according to your needs, experiment, and modify to your taste.

Ingredients 

6 ounces Bourbon whiskey
2 level teaspoons sugar 
fresh spearmint
crushed ice

Instructions

Place between 20 and 40 mint leaves (or a 4-6 sprigs) in a pint glass or martini shaker. Sprinkle sugar over it, pour in Bourbon, and muddle. Stir a bit to incorporate sugar and Bourbon. 

Let sit for at least 15 minutes (this would be an ideal time to go off and have a barbecue). 

Add ice to mixture and shake (optional). 

Fill two Old Fashioned glasses with finely crushed ice and strain mixture into glasses. Optionally, top it off with a splash of club soda.

Add a short straw and garnish with a nice mint sprig. 
 

Enjoy!

 A Journey to the Dark Heart of Nameless Unspeakable Evil  

by Jane Bussmann 

British writer Jane Bussman (South Park, Brass Eye) is bringing the first XXX-rated show ever performed inside the UK Parliament to Largo. A true story savaging Hollywood, Joseph Kony, charities and other abominations. Now, fresh from standing room only performances from London to Kampala, it's the funniest, most hard-hitting, foul-mouthed political comedy ever to play America.

Stressing out about the bubbly to serve at your next event?

We've got you covered...

Many of our clients are concerned about the open bar situation at their venue - mostly about cost and making sure everyone's drink needs are met.  We think the best way to go in any situation is a signature cocktail.  Not only does it cut down on expenses, but you have something special that your guests will remember the evening with.

Lavender Martini 

Ingredients:

Lavender honey syrup: 

Mix 1/8 cup hot water with 1/4 cup honey (we used clover honey). Let simmer for 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon organic lavender.  Allow mixture to marinate for 30 minutes.  Strain so that no petals or leaves are left. 

Now drink up and enjoy!

Hello, World!

With a joyful yelp and maybe a little flush on our cheeks leftover from Valentine's Day, we are proud and excited to launch THREAD Events.

For us at THREAD, events mean many things, but above all our work comes down to one main idea: creating moments. Moments that last a lifetime.  Yes, there will be music, there will be dancing, there will be fabulous eats and treats, but it is the perfect combination of all of these ingredients that makes for the best memories.  

We at THREAD fancy ourselves artists in the event-planning genre.  If events are our canvas, then you can think of this blog as something like a gallery.  Join us here as we fill our walls with tips, tricks, and inspiration.

Thank you for visiting and keep your eyes peeled for more great things to come!
