Cool cup alert! Maker’s Mark has teamed up with some local restaurants to offer this limited edition Maker’s Mark Mint Julep Cup — and all the proceeds go to Apron Inc., a nonprofit that provides emergency financial support to local servers, cooks and bartenders. Each participating restaurant will offer its own unique twist on the mint julep, which will be served in this souvenir cup — and only 1,000 are available … well, make that 999, because I’m going to get one ASAP!
Participating restaurants include: Bistro 1860, Bourbons Bistro, Café Lou Lou, Down One Bourbon Bar & Restaurant, Equus & Jack’s Lounge, Porcini, Sidebar at Whiskey Row, Varanese, and the Village Anchor Pub & Roost.
From the press release: “We are so pleased and thankful to Maker’s Mark and the several restaurants throughout Louisville who have teamed up to help us further our mission of helping those who work in the local food and beverage industry in times of financial distress,” said Luca Bianconcini, a founder and Vice President of Apron Inc. “Our hope is that bourbon fans and foodies will jump at the chance to give back to the talented and hardworking individuals who have spent countless hours giving residents and visitors a wonderful culinary experience here in the Louisville area.”
