The most exciting two minutes in sports takes place in Kentucky each year on the first Saturday in May. This iconic horse race has been taking place in Kentucky since 1937. In 1938, Churchill Downs began promoting the mint julep in association with the Kentucky Derby, and the rest is history.

So each Derby day our friends and family get together to take part in that history. Over the years we have tried a few different versions of the classic mint julep. Below are the top five fan favorites:

Blueberry Mint Julep

Strawberry-Infused Mint Julep

Blackberry Mint Julep

Pineapple Mint Julep

Sweet Tea Mint Julep

What are some of your Kentucky Derby favorites?
