It’s Day #7 and we’re ending the fun with a Mint Julep from the home of the fastest two minutes in sports, Louisville KY. We hope you’ve enjoyed the round-up of delicious cocktails. There is still time to hit the store and serve up some unexpected juleps at this year’s party! Cheers from all of us at 21c Museum Hotels
Proof on Main
Derby is upon us, and Proof on Main at 21c Louisville is gearing up for a day of bourbon revelry. For those watching the most exciting two minutes in sports at home, bartender Cillian Browne recommends a Mint Julep recipe with a kick – featuring Four Roses Single Barrel bourbon and coffee beans.
2oz Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon
.5oz Ramazzotti Amaro
20 Mint Sprigs
8-10 Coffee Beans
Add 8-10 sprigs of mint into a Mint Julep cup, muddle and set aside. Muddle your coffee beans in a mixing glass, then gently muddle 8-10 mint sprigs in your mixing glass. Add Bourbon, Ramazzotti and Cardamaro to the mixing glass. Stir for 20-30 secs, allowing enough time for the coffee beans to infuse with the Bourbon. Double strain into Julep cup. Add crushed ice, stir and top with more crushed ice. Express orange peel over top and garnish with mint, Cacao stick and orange peel.
