For nearly a century, the mint julep has been the traditional beverage of the Kentucky Derby. The customary recipe involves bourbon, sugar, water and mint but some Louisville bartenders have been updating this world-famous drink.
Rather than use mint, they have introduced Kentucky’s own Kilimanjaro Sunrise Ginger Syrup and the response of their patrons has been very positive. Sunrise Ginger Syrup adds a deliciously sweet and slightly spicy twist to an already tasty brew. If you enjoy mint juleps, you might want to try spicing it up a bit with ginger syrup. Give it a shot and you might just wind up with a new favorite drink.
