The Mint Julep is a Southern classic cocktail that is strongly associated with the Kentucky Derby.

The origins of the Mint Julep date back to the 18th century, and it has since become a symbol of Southern hospitality. The cocktail's refreshing mint flavor and smooth bourbon base make it a favorite during the warmer months. The Mint Julep is often garnished with a sprig of mint.
