Bottom Shelf Mixology: Dead Last

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  Our staff of Mixologists have racked their brains (and livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  

The Kentucky Derby is right around the corner, and to celebrate, we thought we would give you the BS version of the official drink of Kentucky: the Mint Julep.

Dead Last
  • 3 oz Heaven Hill Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey
  • 2 Spearmint Altoids, crushed
  • Ice
  • 3 Sweet'N Low packets
  • 1 Piece Trident Spearmint Gum
Start by putting the Sweet'N Low and crushed Altoids in the glass.  Fill the glass with ice, then add the bourbon.  Stir.

Garnish the glass with the stick of gum.

Enjoy this version of the official drink of horse racing while you lose all of your money by betting on the long shot.
