Famously served at the world-famous Kentucky Derby, the Mint Julep is a drink that's as timeless as it is delightful.
A symphony of fresh mint leaves delicately muddled to release their aromatic essence into cannabis-infused simple syrup with a pour of bourbon cascading over the frosty concoction. The mere sight of it is enough to transport you to the charming Southern porches where the Mint Julep reigns supreme.
What’s that taste like? The Mint Julep is a perfect harmony of sweetness and herbal freshness. The coolness from the ice and mint blends seamlessly with the warmth of the bourbon, creating a taste that's simultaneously invigorating and comforting. It's like a sip of summertime sophistication in a glass.
