Mint Julep Wine Bottle Candle
Your day at the Derby wouldn’t be complete without this classic cocktail. Mint Julep’s clean and minty lightness will invigorate your senses – the perfect victory toast as your horse crosses the finish line.
The infamous leisure drink of the Kentucky Derby, in all its fashion and high class, the Mint Julep actually originates from the Middle East. A drink known as a Julab, a mixture of rose petals muddled with water, was a desperate attempt to make often tepid water palatable. By the time the idea caught on in the American South, and potentially influenced by the Mojito, which was also popular in the Caribbean, making the drink out of bourbon quickly replaced the notion of water. Post-Civil War saw the peak of this drink’s popularity, and to this day die-hard mint-lovers can experience it on Derby Day, or anywhere else mixologists adhere to that small bit of history. But luckily, you can experience Mint Julep any day of the year.
