Despite having just five ingredients – mint, sugar, water, spirit, and ice – the Mint Julep is one of the most misunderstood (and often mis-made) cocktails. Join Whiskey Bear for a little illumination on the history of the julep where they’ll trace its course from the earliest days of distillation in the Middle East through the art of making spirits in Northern Europe and across the Atlantic to the development of Kentucky’s first breakfast cocktail. Along the way, they’ll explore how those five items came together to make an iconic yet frequently mangled drink. Finish with a hands-on lesson in making the Perfect Mint Julep and share some exotic recipes sure to enliven any Kentucky party.
Whiskey Bear will even send you home with your own Mint Julep cup and some fresh mint to practice your new skills. The event costs $25 and availability is limited, be sure to get your tickets here.
