Juleps That Sparkle
A Champagne Cocktail for Race Day
Knowing not all guests are bourbon drinkers (and even those that are love good champagne), we are excited to have G.H. Mumm Champagne as the exclusive champagne sponsor of the 13th Annual Brooklyn Derby. If you want to try something special at your party, this Mumm Julep recipe is a winning addition to any Derby celebration.
Perfect for a toast to the Derby.
3 ounces G.H. Mumm Champagne
½ ounce Martell Cognac
1 sugar cube
6-7 mint leaves
In a julep tin or large flute, add mint leaves and sugar cube and a splash of water. Gently press mint leaves with a muddler to release oils. Add cognac, champagne, crushed ice and stir gently. Top with more crushed ice to mound. Garnish with a mint bouquet and strawberry.
