When you're done with this experience, you'll be an expert on Kentucky's famous drink - the Mint Julep! You'll be able to brag to your friends that you graduated from Mint Julep University at Kentucky Derby Museum. But this is no stuffy college class. You and your friends will learn how to make a Mint Julep, and of course, drink it, too. (Cheers!) Learn about the ingredients that make up a julep, find out why we like to "slap" the mint, (yep, it's a thing), and soak up the history of how this beverage became the Kentucky Derby's signature drink. Mix up this cocktail while enjoying a favorite Kentucky dessert – bourbon balls! Plus, you can send your guests home with their own custom Mint Julep gift bag, available for purchase. Take a fun, commemorative picture at the end of class, because you graduated!
