The Woodford Reserve $1,000 Mint Julep Cups are on sale beginning today, and I want one! Hippies say that if you just announce what you want to the universe, you might get it. So here it goes: I’d like one of these $1,000 mint juleps, please and thank you! I promise not to suck it down in two minutes — I will slowly enjoy the fine riches of Woodford Reserve bourbon and and muddled mint in a cup designed for a king.
There are 79 Kentucky Rose Cups (hand-engraved with a gold-plated medallion of a horse) available for purchase online from April 14-May 1, and only 10 Royal Rose Cups (gold-plated and hand-engraved with a sterling silver medallion of a horse). I’m not going to be greedy and opt for a Royal Rose Cup for $2,000. I will be happy as a clam with just the Kentucky Rose. No need to be decadent or greedy.
The ingredients in the $1,000 julep:
• Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select
• Ice infused with rose water
• Mint Julep simple syrup by Bourbon Barrel Foods
• Candied rose petals by Bourbon Barrel Foods
Best of all, all the proceeds from these luxurious drinks go to Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Center, which cares for more than 130 retired racehorses around the country. To buy me a $1,000 Mint Julep, universe, just go to woodfordreservemintjulep.com. It’s as easy as pie! TTFN!
