      Mint Julep Cocktail Kentucky Derby Okay, so we know that Mint Juleps are among the more popular cocktails in this list but with the Kentucky Derby upon us, it didn’t feel right leaving this American classic out of the mix. A favorite among southerners, this refreshing classic cocktail is said to probably have been created sometime during the 1700s. The governor of the Bluegrass state introduced the drink to Washington DC where it gained popularity. It originated as a medicinal beverage and was once made with a gin base instead of bourbon. While we don’t think it will cure anything but sobriety now-a-days this remains a staple in the South and we are excited that it is gaining traction in the rest of the country. 3 fresh mint leaves 1 tablespoon mint simple syrup 1 oz bourbon 1 fresh mint sprig Crushed ice Place mint leaves and mint simple syrup in a chilled julep cup. Gently press leaves against cup with back of bar spoon to release the minty aroma. Fill the cup as tightly as you can with crushed ice and then pour in the bourbon of your choice. Insert straw and garnish with mint sprig.
