Join us on April 30th for a workshop on the Artistry of the Mint Julep.  Mint is in abundance this time of year and Derby day is right around the corner.  As a prelude to Garden Bar’s Derby Day party, we are doing a special workshop in perfecting this quintessential spring-time cocktail.  

Kim Haasarud will be demo’ing this cocktail and all that goes into making the Perfect Mint Julep.  We will also be joined by Erin Mooney of Buckaroo Flower Co, a local florist, in making the mint Julep beautiful with flowers and herb blossoms.  If you love Woodford Reserve and Juleps, you don’t want to miss it! 

Participants will be making their own mint juleps with expert guidance and instructions and some special items to make their own mint juleps at home.

Tickets are $50.  Max of 25 people.

WHEN: Saturday, April 30th, 2-3:30pm

WHERE: Garden Bar PHX, 822 N. 6th Ave.
