With the Kentucky Derby right around the corner (this Saturday, to be exact), perhaps you’re planning your own Derby Day celebration — or at least meeting up with friends for some celebratory mint juleps.

The classic minty cocktail has been the official drink of the Kentucky Derby for over a century, and it’s easy to see why: the combination of mint, a little sugar, and a kick of whiskey, all served in a chilled silver julep cup? It doesn’t get more refreshing than that. So don your most fabulous hat, invite a group of pals over, and serve up one (or all five) of the unique recipes we’ve rounded up below:
