Kentucky Derby Special: The Woodford Reserve Mint Julep

mint julep woodford reserve Kentucky Derby Special: The Woodford Reserve Mint JulepA Mint Julep Recipe for Derby Day

In the tradition of the Kentucky Derby, we’d like to invite you to sit back, relax and pour yourself a Woodford Reserve mint Julep.  What better way to enjoy a classic drink then with a classic bourbon.  The Woodfor Reserve is a handcrafted 90.4 proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon.  It’s a great balance for a bourbon whiskey with a little complexity and rather smooth.

1 serving

1 level tsp powdered sugar

2 – 3 fresh mint leaves

Crushed ice

2 oz. Woodford Reserve, plus a bit more for muddling

Place powdered sugar in julep cup. Add fresh mint leaves. Wet with a splash of Woodford Reserve and muddle together using wooden muddler (a spoon works well aslo). Fill the cup 2/3 full with crushed ice. Add a straw and mint sprig. Garnish and tamp down ice with muddler. Add 2 oz. of Woodford Reserve, and top off the cocktail with loose crushed ice.
