Count down to the Kentucky Derby with Garden & Gun by celebrating the classic Southern cocktail for thirty days leading up to “the most exciting two minutes in sports”. Bars and restaurants across the nation will toast Mint Julep Month with custom cocktails and special events.
We encourage Mint Julep Month participants to help us create environmental change by eliminating the use of plastic straws in drinks and replacing them with sustainable alternatives. Beyond the straw alone, Mint Julep Month signals the start of Maker’s Mark’s ongoing ‘Cocktails for Cleanups’ initiative to remove trash from the world’s oceans and waterways in partnership with United By Blue. Through consumer engagement during Mint Julep Month, specialty merchandise and organized clean-ups, Maker’s Mark will remove up to 75,000 pounds of trash from the world’s waterways in 2019.
