“THE TRIPLE CROWN”
Maker’s Mark 46 Bourbon/Blackberries/Cherries/Mint Simple Syrup
Count down to the Kentucky Derby with @GardenandGun, @MarkersMark and @GoToLousiville by celebrating the classic Southern cocktail for thirty days leading up to “the most exciting two minutes in sports”. EPIC Restaurant will toast Mint Julep Month with a custom cocktail from April 5 until May 5, 2019!
Since the 1800s, the mint julep has been one of America’s most iconic cocktails. The humble straw, invented specifically for use in that illustrious mint julep, is every bit as iconic. Unfortunately, the paper straws of the 1800s have evolved into the modern plastic straws that contribute heavily to plastic pollution in our oceans and waterways. In conjunction with Mint Julep Month, Garden & Gun and Maker’s Mark challenge participants to use paper straws and ditch the plastic to make a lasting positive difference for our environment.
