My good friend, Elaine, is a long-time fan of the Derby, and actually was blessed to be able to attend one year.

She got all decked out with her husband and spent the weekend. It was on her bucket list and I’m so glad she was able to experience that!

With the craziness that was 2020, it’s so exciting to have the Kentucky Derby back this year. It’s something that we all really need. 

I thought it would be fun to put together a collection of mint julep recipes. But, I had no idea there were so many varieties.

The blogging community always comes through strong! Check out these mint juleps including classic recipes, fruit versions, sugar-free, even mocktails so you can get the kids in on the action!
