Woodford Reserve unveiled the 2015 edition of its $1,000 Mint Julep Cup for the Kentucky Derby. This year’s iteration was designed in partnership with fashion designer Billy Reid and mixologist Pamela Wiznitzer, resulting in a Mint Julep that’s distinctly modern. The 2015 julep represents a new take on the heritage cocktail that is the classic Mint Julep. Using the finest ingredients, such as Woodford Reserve Double Oaked, coconut palm sugar syrup, chocolate mint sprigs, candied orange and lemon slices, and powdered sugar, the recipe honors the history behind the cocktail while also appealing to contemporary julep drinkers.

It says: “Combine ingredients and shake with the mint. In the Julep glass, place 3 sprigs of the mint at the bottom and top with crushed ice. Strain over crushed ice into a julep glass, insert metal spoon straw. Top it with a mint sprig and candied orange/lemon slice and powdered sugar”.
This year’s cups will benefit the Wounded Warrior Equestrian Program.
