We typically highly recommend making a Mint Julep with real fresh mint which means we put a lot of time and research into finding a Mint Syrup that we felt was worthy of a simple and fast version.

We know that MOST mint syrups produce a cocktail that people tolerate for tradition. It’s part of the reason we typically tell people they probably haven’t had a GOOD Mint Julep.

In fact we rejected a number of syrups for our cocktail kits for virtual events because they either tasted like chewing gum or toothpaste. We poured a lot out. But not this one. THIS we drank.

This is NOT a paid ad or partnership either! THE Derby classic.

Our 2022 Mint Julep Cocktail Kit for virtual events includes:

  • Cheeky Mint Syrup
  • Japanese Jigger
  • 4 stainless steel cocktail straws (colors may vary but typically silver)

Serves up to 4 drinks per kit!

Our 2022 Mint Julep Cocktail Kit is available through select fulfillment partners exclusively for our guided virtual bourbon tastings.
