Our Kentucky Derby Mint Julep
The Whiskey Raider’s Mint Julep
Our Kentucky Bourbon Mint Julep has everything you need to enjoy the Kentucky Derby or a relaxing summer day on your front porch.
The Mint Julep is a simple cocktail to make, and even easier to drink. You can make the cocktail with only bourbon and mint-infused simple syrup. Or you can add some hibiscus syrup as well, giving it more of a tea-like vibe.
