With the Derby right around the corner, we present our third Mint Julep inspired cocktail, the SOUTHERN SANGRIA.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To some Southerners, the julep is almost sacred, but here it’s infused with another point of Southern pride: peaches. Topped off with Champagne, the delicious result is a sparkling cocktail that transcends its inspiration to become a new classic.

If the Mint Julep and the Manhattan had a lovechild, it would be the LOUISVILLE… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This riff on the Manhattan uses a semi-dry white vermouth, a slightly sweet herbal liqueur, in place of the traditional red vermouth. The dashes of mint bitters reference another legendary Southern classic bourbon-based cocktail, the Mint Julep. Barrel-aged bourbon is the pride of Kentucky, whose residents often claim its invention.

The @kentuckyderby is this Saturday! Whatcha drinkin? Not the same ol’ Mint Julep...?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How about a FROSTED JULEP instead? A frozen version of a Mint Julep, which is the official drink of the Kentucky Derby. Classic Mint Juleps are enjoyed over crushed ice, which is not easy to come by. This recipe creates a similar icy consistency without the hassle. The mint syrup imparts a strong mint flavor the classic can sometimes lack. The addition of brandy is a nod to President Teddy Roosevelt, who enjoyed Mint Juleps on the @whitehouse lawn served in these distinctive glass cups that resemble the pewter mugs of @churchilldowns tradition.

glassware: Teddy Roosevelt "1904" Mint Julep Cups
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ingredients (serves 6)
For the Mint Syrup:
- 1½ cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- ½ cup mint leaves, lightly packed
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the Frosted Julep:
- 1 batch mint syrup
- 1 cup @makersmark Kentucky Bourbon
- ¼ cup @ejbrandy
- 1½ cups water
- 10 mint leaves, finely chopped
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
directions
For the Mint Syrup:
Stir together water, sugar, and mint leaves in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a steady boil. Boil, stirring frequently, until sugar has dissolved (about 1-2 minutes).
Remove saucepan from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Strain syrup to remove mint and press mint leaves against strainer using the back of a spoon to release oils and excess syrup.
Transfer to a glass container and refrigerate until syrup is chilled (about 1 hour).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the Julep:
Combine mint syrup, bourbon, brandy, water, and mint leaves to a metal 9” x 9” baking dish. Freeze 6-8 hours. Scrape the frozen mixture in different directions with a fork. To serve, spoon 7 oz. of Frosted Julep into six Julep Cups and garnish with a fresh mint sprig.

Happy Earth Day!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are celebrating with the Anti-Gravity Martini from @cocktailchameleon by @Mark_Addison!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Inspired by @TheAcademy Award-winning Film, Gravity staring @Sandrabullockco, this magnificent drink is a marvel of molecular mixology. It’s encased in a hollow sphere of ice and has an “asteroid” Pop Rocks rim. When the ice is broken, the liquid flows out like—in director @AlfonsoCuarón’s own words—“the primordial soup that created all life on Earth.” Photographed in a @Baccarat Vega Tumbler.
