Kentucky Derby Cocktail Class

  • Southern Efficiency 1841 7th St NW Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

The Julep first appeared in the US in Virginia (not Kentucky), but its origins date back as far as 1400 AD.

Learn the history and variations of this stellar spring drink and, perhaps most importantly, learn to make the perfect Julep at home and for your Derby parties.

Derek Brown — Imbibe "Bartender of the Year" for 2015 — will lead attendees through his special process of crafting the perfect Julep.

You'll taste three Julep variations: the Maryland Style Julep, Gin Julep, and Mint Julep while snacking on Kentucky Derby-inspired bites like pimento cheese and bourbon balls.
