The Early Times Mint Julep – The Official Mint Julep of the Kentucky Derby


No Kentucky Derby menu could be complete without the Mint Julep... but not just any Mint Julep... The Early Times Mint Julep.

This Mint Julep is not a traditional one… a traditional Mint Julep is made with four ingredients, mint, bourbon, sugar and water…. this recipe uses a Kentucky whiskey instead of bourbon.

The official mint julep of the Kentucky Derby is made with Early Times, which is a Kentucky whiskey, not bourbon, like the traditional recipe requires.

The Early Times Mint Julep has been the official cocktail of the Kentucky Derby since 1938.

You can purchase a pre-made Early Times Mint Julep at your favorite retailer…or make it yourself… personally… I would go with the pre-made one… these people have it down to perfection.

But if you must make it yourself.. the Early Times website has a recipe just for you.

A mint julep sounds perfect! I'd love to go to the Kentuck Derby someday...drove through Kentucky a couple of years ago and keep meaning to go back (especially to hit the Bourbon Trail). :)

well... the "official" mint julep doesn't use boubon.... I'm not a fan of mint ... so this one was not for me... hmmm... I had no idea that there was a bourbon trail...
