Mint Julep

Mint Julep

The Kentucky Derby is right around the corner! My husband was born in Kentucky and the majority of his family still lives there. Needless to say, the Derby is a big deal in the Brockman family. We went in 2014 and it was a blast! From the Oaks Lily Cocktail to big hats, it is definitely a bucket list experience. But, you don't have to go to Louisville to celebrate the derby. I have an iconic cocktail recipe for you to use May 5th and 6th. The perfect Mint Julep recipe is below and here is a link to the Derby stations with watch times!

Time to place your bets!
