Since Derby Day traditionally happens in the beginning of May, I always associate it with the beginning of summer. Burgoo is one of those recipes that can be left open to interpretation. It is traditionally made with whatever meats beef or pork and vegetables lima beans, corn or okra are available.
Here are a few variations on the traditional julep that are also worth a look. Glenfiddich 14 Bourbon Barrel Reserve is aged in two bourbon casks, the second a heavily charred virgin oak cask, unique to the Kelvin Cooperage and the Glenfiddich distillery. This cask finishing brings rich flavors of vanilla, summer fruits and caramelized oak, the perfect base for your new favorite mint julep.
Schools are closed today. When I worked for a marketing firm in Louisville, Derby week meant that every day at noon, our boss would whip out his credit card and take us all to a bar for the rest of the afternoon. So big, in fact, I made you some dessert to celebrate.

What makes this mint julep so refreshing? The fresh-squeezed cucumber juice and lime juice. This fresh tropical cocktail has a touch of tangy kiwi.
