Confessions of a Mixologist: Mint Julep
The combinations for this three-ingredient cocktail are limitless. With our selection of over 300 bourbons, you could have a different variation of the Mint Julep every day of the year. If you didn't know... This minty concoction was thrown together in the early 19th century. It was originally consumed as a spirituous liquor that has mint steeped in it. Rum was the main ingredient, but after being popularized by Kentucky, it quickly switched to bourbon.
