The mint julep has long been a cherished tradition of the South, with over 120,000 served at Churchill Downs in celebration of The Kentucky Derby on the first Saturday in May. The Savory Pantry's Mint Julep Kit makes it easy to whip up this classic cocktail at home, in the event you can't make your way to Louisville!
Our stunning gift is anchored by two traditional nickel-plated mint julep cups. These weighty cups get frosty quickly and, with a 12 oz. capacity, make for one hefty julep! Rim the cups with the rich caramel flavors of pure, raw sugar kissed with mint. (Delicious addition to iced tea as well!) Stainless steel julep spoon and straws add a sophisticated touch and provide for elegant sipping.
A trio of handsome bar tools makes for easy and proper mixing of any number of cocktails, and includes a stainless steel strainer, a Japanese style jigger with 1 oz. & 2 oz. capacity, and a natural hardwood muddler, perfect for muddling mint and more. Completing the gift is Denise Gee's Southern Cocktails: Dixie Drinks, Party Potions & Classic Libations, a nod to the South's classic drinks with recipes for appropriate nibbles come five o'clock.
Each gift arrives wrapped in our jute and cotton tote with ribbon, and is a thoughtful remembrance for showers, housewarmings and horse racing fans.
