Mintwood Mixology | The Mint Julep
The first Saturday in May is upon us and you know what that means, right!? Commonly known as "the most exciting two minutes in sports" or "the run for the roses", The Kentucky Derby is arguably the most watched horse race in America.

Do we have you humming the tune of "My Old Kentucky Home" yet or what?
