Mint Julep Recipe
It’s officially Mint Julep season and we’re celebrating by sharing Wild Common’s unique take on the classic spring cocktail. In 2013, Louisville – the hometown of the Kentucky Derby – officially declared April Mint Julep Month. Every year, Garden and Gun, Maker’s Mark and Bourbon Country partner with participating restaurants to cheers to the occasion with custom cocktails and special events.
Inspired by DH Lawrence’s quote “I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself,” Wild Common’s Mint Julep limited edition cocktail is one you don’t want to miss. Come taste the uncommon and enjoy Wild Common’s new space. If you’re not local to Charleston, we’ve shared the recipe below so you can make it yourself to serve at your next Derby party!
