The Kentucky Derby is our annual reminder to drink more bourbon

Grab your two-dollar bills because the biggest day in horse racing is just around the bend. And that means it’s time for mint juleps!

A classic mint julep cocktail is piled high with ice, bourbon, and mint. But once the classic is mastered, what happens next?

This month, bars and restaurants across America are putting their own spins on the julep during Mint Julep Month. With Nashville’s thriving food and beverage scene, you can taste participating venues’ unique twists on the cocktail in at Makeready Libations & Liberation at Noelle, Chauhan Ale & Masala House, Josephine, The Mockingbird, Tànsuŏ, or Henley. Henley’s julep take, for example, calls for Maker’s Mark and mint along with sunflower, dandelion, meadow herbs, and nutmeg.

But in case there isn’t a classic julep near you, grab a bottle of bourbon and make your own at home. Participating venues in Nashville are using Maker’s Mark, but Woodford Reserve is the Derby’s official spirit.Try recreating one of these julep renditions at home, which would be the perfect beverage at any Derby party.


So much more than the Kentucky Derby mainstay for which it’s known, a great mint julep is a marriage of mint, sugar, bourbon, and the kind of cold that can only come by being poured over a mound of crushed ice. That’s it.

A class of drink unto itself (the Julep), the Mint Julep is essentially an Old-Fashioned, with the enlivening taste and scent of mint in place of the aromatics of bitters: You have your base spirit (bourbon), and you’re just adding a touch of life’s sweetness to make it all go down smoother.

Throw in more than 200 years of tradition and customs – including a sprig of aromatic mint to bury your nose in – and you’ll have the whole experience of it.
