Cocktail of the Week- Mint Julep

29 Nov

As we transition from fall to winter, we could really use some of the popular brown liquors, such as Bourbon Whiskey, Scotch Whisky and Brandy, to warm us up on those cold and windy days.  The Mint Julep is a popular, classic cocktail that contains Bourbon Whiskey, with Simple Syrup and Mint Leaves muddled to release the sensual mint flavor.  History dates the Mint Julep back to 18th Century, and for decades it has been the official cocktail of the Kentucky Derby.  The Mint Julep gives you the sweet and bold taste of Bourbon with the freshness of mint.  It’s a great way to enjoy Jack Daniels, Woodford Reserve and Makers Mark Bourbon Whiskeys!  Top your fall off with, and tip your hat to, a refreshing Mint Julep!
