5 Mint Julep Recipes You’ll Want to Make for Derby Day

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:
