The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow (May 5), and when the masses descend on Churchill Downs in their finest Derby duds (and hats), they’ll be ordering Mint Juleps like crazy.
If you’re hosting a Derby party or are attending one, consider putting a spin on the classic cocktail with these five variations.
Orange Mint Julep: For those who love a citrus twist!
Champagne Julep: For those who love the bubbly!
Chocolate Mint Julep: For those who enjoy a dessert cocktail!
Sweet Tea Mint Julep: Two southern classics collide with this drink recipe.
Spicy Pineapple Mint Julep: Jalapeno simple syrup gives this drink its kick, while the pineapple provides a mellow flavor.
