Spring is made for mint juleps, perfect for outdoor sipping. Mix up muddled mint, sugar, bourbon, serve it up in that elegant silver cup, and it’s good to go. It doesn't hurt that it pairs well with Derby Day on Saturday, May 4, either.
Austin's mint julep options include traditional drinks at Mattie’s at Green Pastures, a brandy one from Roosevelt Room, a non-alcoholic iteration from Houndstooth Coffee, and others.
Keeping with the julep theme, here is Eater’s updated Derby Day guide. For other specific drink needs, check out Austin’s best margaritas, as well as the city’s cocktail heatmap, essential bars, and iconic drinks.
