You may not see the lush wreath of roses in person, but having a Gin Julep by Transformation Spirits will get you close. Bourbon is swapped for the Louisville distillery’s Limited Release Bourbon Barreled Gin in this mint julep recipe. Grabbing a bottle of the barreled gin is like having a piece of the derby at home. Afterall, Transformation Spirits is The Official Gin of the Kentucky Derby Festival.
3 oz. Limited Release Bourbon Barreled Gin
- 1 oz. Mint Simple Syrup
- Fresh Mint Sprigs, for garnish
- Crushed Ice
- Fill a julep cup with crushed ice
- Add gin and mint syrup
