Mint Julep Bars Recipe


The Kentucky Derby is always held on the first Saturday of May. Its a huge celebration, complete with fancy hats, traditional foods, and of course, the official Kentucky Derby cocktail, the Mint Julep. A proper mint julep consists of Kentucky bourbon, fresh mint, and simple syrup. Whether you plan to attend the festivities or not, you can capture the flavors of this cocktail in the following Mint Julep Bars.

The texture of these bars will remind you of lemon squares, although the flavors are decidedly different. They are the perfect way to celebrate the Kentucky Derby.
