You can’t have the Kentucky Derby without Mint Juleps!
Whether you go for a classic, a twist, or something non-alcoholic, here are some recipes to get you started.
First up, a classic julep recipe like this one from Camille Styles
While the classic is always a safe choice, there is no shortage of recipes for juleps with a twist. Here are a few fun ones:
There’s no question that I love anything purple so I have a soft spot for this Sparkling Blackberry Mint Julep from Creative Culinary. I mean how gorgeous is this?
And, if you are from the South, you probably love your sweet tea. Here’s one that mixes two popular southern drinks with a Sweet Tea Mint Julep from Spicy Southern Kitchen.
Or what about this yummy-looking peach julep from Broma Bakery.
While the alcoholic versions are fun, you might have some folks who don’t want to (or can’t) imbibe, so here are some non-alcoholic versions to keep them in the spirit!
