Today is Friday, and you now what that means, its time for Friday’s Vintage Cocktail! Each Friday I feature a blog where I’ share a cocktail from the golden age of glamour to celebrate the weekend being upon us! As always please remember to drink responsibly, and if there are any younger readers to please abide by the drinking laws in your country or state, you can always make a mocktail though!
For today’s cocktail I’ve chosen a fresh and bubbly twist on the Mint Julep, which is the Champagne Julep! While researching this week for my cocktail I really wanted to include something with bubbles as I’m loving the decadence and flavour of champagne at the moment! The Mint Julep itself draws its origin from the south in America, and is believed to be created during the eighteenth century. The mint and champagne julep became very popular in the 1940’s and 1950’s and since 1938 has been associated with the Kentucky Derby!
I love this cocktail! It’s fresh, zingy, and bubbly! Its so lovely to sit inside with the cool weather and rain and enjoy this with the fire keeping me toasty warm. I think the Champagne Julep would make a fabulous party drink in a decadent vintage punch bowl. If you’re not much of a bourbon drinker never fear, neither am I and I still enjoyed this delicious drink.
