Description: The mint julep cocktail is a standout classic bourbon cocktail on the 1923 Prohibition Bar menu made with Woodford Reserve bourbon, fresh mint leaves, house-made sugar syrup and garnished with powdered sugar and a sprig of mint.
This classic cocktail can be traced back to a variety of fascinating origin stories, starting with the name hailing from Europe, where the cocktail was used as a medicinal blend of herbs and spirits. In the 1800s, the libation gained popularity as a morning beverage for horse farmers to help relieve pain in lieu of traditional medicine. Its bourbon was touted for its ability to soothe aching muscles, while sugar provided energy and mint “helped open the eyes,” according to these horse farmers. Today, the cocktail is famous for its association with the Kentucky Derby.
