Raspberry Mint Julep Recipe

Do you guys like to keep your various groups of friends separate or do you let them mingle? Generally, I like to lump all of my friends together at dinners and parties – I figure all my friends like me, so they already have one thing in common.

Growing up in Vancouver meant that summertimes were made for road-tripping it down to the Okanagan Valley to pick fruit at all the U-Pick orchards.
