Use this guide for everything Derby-related—Derby day fashion, the perfect Mint Julep recipe, how to plan a Kentucky Derby
party, and more. You won't need to make the trip to Churchill Downs to experience all the Derby has to offer.
You'll need to know how to “muddle," which means to crush or mash ingredients with a spoon to release flavor. A bar tool called
a “muddler” can be used (its shape reminds us of a mini baseball bat) or use a wooden spoon.
