Stir Up a Classic Cocktail

The Derby Day cocktail of choice for nearly a century, the mint julep is steeped in Southern tradition. Each year, nearly 120,000 mint juleps are served during the two-day race at Kentucky’s Churchill Downs Racetrack. Here, we use a mint simple syrup for a more concentrated mint flavor. Packed with mint and crushed ice, it’s a refreshing drink you’ll enjoy all summer long.

Instructions

SERVINGS: 1 DRINK

Mix the bourbon with the simple syrup and stir. Pour over crushed ice. Garnish with mint sprig.
