A Mint Julep is a delightful cocktail, with Its simplicity it’s a great example of the diversity of bourbon and mint in cocktails. With it being the Kentucky derby official drink it’s not a surprise its so popular. Fun Fact:
It takes 7,800 litres of bourbon and 2,250 pounds of locally grown mint to make the 120,000 Mint Juleps sold at Churchill Downs during Kentucky Derby weekend. That's a whole lot of mint juleps
