Mint Julep Desserts

This morning I looked at my monthly calendar and I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw that next week we will be heading into May! If you live down South or basically anywhere in the United States for that matter you know that next weekend is the Kentucky Derby. I think that we can all agree on the fact that Mint Juleps are synonymous with the Kentucky Derby and horse races in general. Above are a few Mint Julep inspired desserts, which to me is a pretty clever twist on this classic cocktail; Mint Julep Cupcake – ummmm…sign me up for that!

Here’s where to get the recipe. Click on the name of the dessert to be directed to the website where you can find the recipe.
1.             Mint Julep Cupcakes
2.            Mint Julep Granita
3.            Mint Julep Sorbet

  9. Ooooooooooooooooo the sorbet! I love it. You can pour a little extra bourbon on that one.

    Are you going to the Derby? Can you believe I've never been?! One of these years.

  13. Derby is such an epic southern event, and the mint julep is needed to stay cool and calm while waiting to place your bets! I love the granita recipe!
