This week we made our way to The Wilson to find out how to make classic Mint Juleps as well as Mint Juleps with a twist! In addition to learning a bit of cocktail history - it seems like the straw was made with Mint Juleps in mind in order to sip the beverage that is known to be filled with ice. Led by the Maker’s Mark team, we were not only introduced into the art of making this drink, but were provided an array of tools including a muddler for the mint, Mint Julep cups that are “dipped” in the signature Maker’s Mark style, a canvas bag to place the ice, a mallot to crush it, a mat to keep your surface clean and a cocktail spoon. It was great to learn how to make this drink which is simple to make, but can definitely pack a punch.
Maker’s Mark actually celebrates the Mint Julep for a month to truly honor the heritage of this drink that is made with their signature whisky bourbon. Hopefully with the Kentucky Derby around the corner, you will make sure to enjoy this signature drink!
