Horses, hats and Mint Juleps are front and center at the annual Kentucky Derby. This cocktail embodies the South’s many charms and helps you survive the sometimes stifling heat that comes with the territory. As always, Dr. Thacher’s Whiskey Cocktail Syrup is made from pure botanical ingredients, in this case that means: cane sugar simple syrup infused with spearmint and peppermint. Just add whiskey for a delightfully revitalizing spin on a drink fit for any day of the year.
