With the Kentucky Derby this weekend and the NFL Draft to follow, Captain Morgan has come up with a great drink for ladies to love the horses and/or the pigskin. Introducing the #MintMutiny drink, the perfect drink to match that beautiful Derby hat or signature drink for your NFL Draft party.
While Mint Juleps are typically made with Whiskey and is the Kentucky Derby's traditional drink of choice, Captain Morgan has paired up with Top Chef judge Hugh Acheson to swap out your old and boring Mint Juleps for Mint Mutiny.
The ingredients are as follows:
· crushed ice
· 1 teaspoon fresh mint, torn into pieces
· 1½ ounces Captain Morgan White Rum
· ½ ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
· ½ ounce Rose Water-infused Simple Syrup
· Club Soda
· Fresh mint, muddled
· 1 cucumber spear
Directions: Fill a julep glass with crushed ice. Add the Captain Morgan White Rum, lemon juice, Rose Simple Syrup, and then fill with club soda until the glass is almost full. Top the glass with a mound of more crushed ice and garnish with a cucumber spear and mint sprig.
Viola'! A great drink for the perfect sporting event. Happy drinking, and remember to drink responsibly!
