In honor of our new Louisville store, we’re sharing the Derby spirit with this recipe for the perfect mint julep.

For a traditional take on the Southern drink, combine mint leaves, simple syrup and  bourbon in a pewter cup. Get the full recipe here.

For an I-like-to-enjoy-the-bourbon twist, try the Alton Brown approach: combine your mint and bourbon with some seltzer water and superfine sugar.

Don your fanciest hat and sip it slow, y’all.
