Here in Nashville we make our spring mint juleps with Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, of course. But, we will serve them with our Kentucky neighbor's wonderful cucumber Benedictine. Ours is more of a dip than a sandwich spread. It will do the job of laying a nice foundation while enjoying that second julep. The Iroquois Steeplechase is Nashville's renowned race. The second Saturday in May, it marks the beginning of the summer for us. Talk about sensory overload. The horses are incredible, the hounds are so cool, the hats, the hats, the hats...and the food. What's in your picnic basket? We're packing Indian.
