Even with this weather the Kentucky Derby will run today and for those who will be enjoying the action from he comfort of your warm home then we have the cocktail and awesome giveaway for you. We recently received some amazing copper mint julep cups and accessories from Sertodo Copper and as soon as they arrived with our engraved logo on them we called the team and asked if we could do a giveaway with them.
Because they are so awesome they agreed so check out our Instagram post for the details and enter for your chance to win your own set. Luckily this is a festival that continually coincides with another big drinking day, Cinco de Mayo, which means that we all probably have some leftover tequila sitting around. Although some (usually, a lot) bourbon should almost always be consumed during the Kentucky Derby why not put that leftover tequila to use? We had planned on making some traditional Mint Juleps but there was so much tequila still sitting on the bar that we just started throwing it in the juleps instead and it tasted awesome.
- 2 ounces tequila añejo
- ½ ounce agave syrup
- 6 mint leaves
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 1 mint sprig (garnish)
- In the bottom of your julep cups combine the agave syrup and mint leaves
- Add crushed ice to fill the cups
- Pour tequila añejo over the ice and stir lightly to mix all the ingredients
- Garnish with a mint sprig
