Peter Beaton Hat Studio on Nantucket (visit the store on Federal Street or shop online) can have you looking your best in a hat made of lock-stitched leghorn straw. Each hat comes with a pre-tied grosgrain ribbon and signature striped hatbox. A perfect gift that will be treasured and enjoyed for many years.
And if you will be heading to the Derby (May 1st this year) you may want to write down PETER BEATON’s recipe for the perfect mint julep (begin the day ahead for best results):
First make the syrup: combine 2 cups of sugar & 2 cups of water and boil for 5 minutes. Let cool. Place in a container with several sprigs of fresh mint. Refrigerate overnight.
When it's time for cocktails, pour 2 ounces of bourbon and 1 tablespoon of syrup over crushed ice in a chilled mint julep cup and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint. ~
