You don't have to like horse racing or Kentucky bourbon to have a good time at the Mint Julep Jubilee!
Junior League member Christy Kramer and I were manning the mint julep table for most of the afternoon. If you don't know what's in a mint julep, it's basically one part simple syrup and 10 parts bourbon! Oh, and of course... a little mint.
The yearly event at the Poplar Grove Plantation helps raise funds for one of the many charitable projects administered by the Junior League of Wilmington. The group will unveil a new project in the fall to help at-risk school kids.
The Mint Julep Jubilee is a great way to get introduced to the South: big hats, bright dresses, seersucker suits and bowties! Check out more pictures on Facebook!
