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! They look more handsome when sitting a top our colorful julep-themed cocktail napkin. Woodford Reserve's Mint Julep Simple Syrup is made from raw Demerara sugar and fresh spearmint, imparting a rich and minty flavor that ensures your julep is perfect every time.
A trio of handsome bar tools makes for easy and proper mixing of any number of cocktails, and includes a stainless steel Julep strainer, a Japanese style jigger with 1 oz. & 2 oz. capacity, and a natural olivewood muddler, perfect for muddling mint and more. Southerner's will appreciate nibbling on a sweet & spicy glazed pecan while sipping their julep. 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 gift-boxed and ribboned. A thoughtful remembrance for showers, housewarmings and horse racing fans.
