The perfect southern twist on a Derby Classic - Ginger Mint Julep

If it starts to feel cool in the shade and warm in the sun, if you remember that the Kentucky Derby is just around the corner, if you feel a breeze start to blow through the live oaks and southern pine..

It's time to pick some fresh mint, grab a bottle of your favorite bourbon and a bottle of our famous Ginger Syrup.

Pick a spot in the dappled shade, sip and smile.
