Chocolate-Mint Julep

Lord Honey, if it's Kentucky Derby time, y'all can bet folks are tossin' back mint juleps. Well I just couldn't resist addin' a li'l somethin' to elevate this traditional Derby drink. And of course, the natural choice to pair with mint is chocolate. I think y'all will agree that my "Chocolate-Mint Julep" gives this simple bourbon cocktail the perfect touch, with a li'l taste of sweet chocolatey goodness.
