Riders up! Derby Weekend is here and Four Roses Bourbon dreamed up a sweet, yet refreshing take on the classic Churchill Downs libation with the Four Roses Hibiscus Mint Julep. Not only does it incorporate the trending method of infusing tea into cocktails, but it is also a cocktail that can be easily prepped for those hosting guests outside of the racetrack.


2 fl oz Four Roses Small Batch
1/2 fl oz Hibiscus Simple Syrup
2-3 Mint Leaves
Mint Leaves for Garnish


Steep 1 part hibiscus tea to 1 part granulated sugar. Stir until dissolved.

Muddle mint with hibiscus syrup in a Julep cup.

Add Bourbon and crushed ice. Pack tight.

Swizzle or stir until the cocktail is well chilled.

Add more ice to create a dome and garnish.
