Our Kentucky Derby Trophy Invitation features the solid gold trophy that is annually awarded to the owner of the winning horse since 1924, the 50th Run for the Roses.

For the 125th Derby trophy, the horse shoe was changed to face upwards and has remained that way since. The handcrafted trophy (horse and rider are from a mold) is 22 inches tall and has a jade base.

Talk Derby to Me: Mint Julep Recipe

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

The official drink of the Kentucky Derby is the Mint Julep. If you’re thinking about serving original Mint Juleps at your Kentucky Derby Party, you will need to start them way in advance and whichever recipe you choose, you will need lots and lots and lots of crushed or shaved ice!

The original mint julep takes 4-6 hours for the bourbon-sugar mixture to sit or you can make the quick  or really quick versions that don’t require any wait time for the flavors to blend.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water (prefer distilled or bottled)
  • 8 fresh mint sprigs finely chopped (Use only the leaves, no stems)
  • 1 quart bourbon (Early Times, Jim Beam but Wild Turkey will suffice)
  • Fresh mint sprigs for garnish

Preparation:
Combine sugar, water, chopped mint leaves and bourbon in a glass container and stir until the sugar dissolves*. Cover and let stand 4 -6 hours.

To serve:
Strain the bourbon-sugar mixture into a large pitcher and discard the chopped mint. Fill your choice of glass with cracked ice; add bourbon-sugar mixture, and garnish with mint sprigs. *You might want to make extra of the bourbon-sugar mixture so you don’t run out.
