After you place your bets and put on your hat, there’s only one thing left to do to get ready for the Kentucky Derby: make a mint julep.
If you’re not sure how to put together the Derby’s signature cocktail, don’t worry, we have you covered.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 8–10 mint leaves
- 1 tablespoon simple syrup
- crushed ice
- 1–2 oz. bourbon
To see how to put it all together, check out the video above, in which guest bartender Marcia Herold shows us how it goes.
For a little extra fun, we had the Extra Mustard gang race to see who could make the best mint julep. Be sure to watch to see Rohan make a fool of himself.
Have fun watching the race!
