This is the time of year that turns our thoughts to spring cocktails and refreshing drinks. The 142nd running of the Kentucky Derby inside venerable Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky merits a nod here and now as the home of the ultimate event drink: The Mint Julep. If there is a more appropriate and delicious libation for the viewing of a race it has remained hidden to me. For the combination of a frosted julep cup bristling with mint, the stiff sweet bite of fine Kentucky Bourbon, and the visions of audacious millinery always seem to result in waves of euphoria and delight.
I’m told there are different versions of the Julep, early versions called for gin or brandy. Even the word julep itself comes from the Persian word gulab, or Rose water, but Americans have been drinking the Julep with their national spirit since at least the early 19th century. Henry Clay, the fiery Kentucky Senator introduced the bourbon julep to Washington D.C. in the 1850’s at The Willard Hotel and the Nation’s capital has never looked back. So, that all being said, the Bourbon mint julep is the way to go on race day.
