First up we have The Ginger Julep '68 Flashback:
Isn't it pretty?
Why love it: The Ginger Julep '68 Flashback brings a warm, gentle heat to the julep cocktail family with an invigorating ginger kick and splash of lime zest.
To have more than one option, we have a second Julep drink, The Bulleit Rye Mint Julep:
The Bulleit Rye Mint Julep was created by professional mixologist, Toby Maloney from Alchemy Consulting who I had the pleasure of meeting Tuesday evening (that's saved for another blog post!).
Why love it: The mint julep has been the refreshing spring cocktail icon of the Kentucky Derby since 1938, proving its test of time as a classic and distinguished recipe.
Bulleit Bourbon was created in the 1800s by Augustus Bulleit and revived by the grandson of Augustus, Tom Bulleit, in 1987. They age and distill Bulleit Bourbon in small batches, even today, and the taste is supposedly unparalleled. Bulleit Rye is a small batch, straight rye whiskey made from 95% rye and 5% malted barley. Admittedly, I don't know much about Bourbon, but I intend on trying these drinks made with Bulleit Bourbon in the very near future! Check out all the accolades that Bulleit Bourbon has received here.
