Of course, when you're whipping up mint juleps for your Derby parties (or making your own mint julep bar), you can update the classic cocktail recipe for a surprising new twist. That includes new flavors of simple syrups, additional fruits and vegetables (like cucumbers or strawberries), and even spirits beyond the classic Kentucky bourbon. From San Francisco to New York, bartenders are redefining just the basic tenets of the mint julep. But that doesn't mean you should ignore the standard Derby Day drink; thanks to the good people at Maker's Mark, we show you how to make the perfect mint julep for your party with a foolproof recipe.

Like any cocktail, there are tricks to doing the mint julep just right — and it's not always as easy to master. Some easy tips to remember when mixing a mint julep: use a strong bourbon (90-proof or higher), don't overmuddle your mint to capture the full aromas, and, if using the standard crushed ice, hand-crush it yourself and try to drain the excess water, as to not dilute the drink. If you're using a pre-chilled julep glass, David Wondrich notes, a wet ice won't do. Click ahead to find the ultimate julep recipes for all of your Kentucky Derby needs.

Orange Blossom Julep Recipe

Almost nothing says "summer in the South" than a yummy, chilled julep. However, the sugar that gets added to most mint julep recipes is typically refined, and not in the way that means "Southern elegance."

Cheers to Lipton Iced Tea, who ponied up with Eron Plevan, head mixologist at Louisville's Gold Bar, to create this modern, better-for-you twist on the classic julep recipe. This recipe looks to honey—not sugar—for its sweet character. Plus, if you drop in a generous scoop of the crushed ice this calls for, you can dial back a little extra on the iced tea's 18 grams of sugar, too. This drink also goes about a quarter lighter on liquor than a lot of juleps do, which might make this a friendly choice to someone who's just finding out whether they're besties with bourbon.

Recipes You've Never Heard of Outside Your Family

Does anyone have family recipes for foods/meals you really enjoy but that you've never heard of in anyone else's family? Might seem like a weird question, but the reason I bring it up.

Sloppy Joe's at my house growing up, and at my house now, are not tomato-based, aka Manwich-like. They're made w/ ground beef, a can of chicken gumbo soup, a diced green pepper and ketchup and yellow mustard. I've never heard of this in anyone else's family. *ever*. It sounds like a "back of the soup can" recipe, but I've never found it. And because it has yellow mustard, my husband refuses to eat it.

The other one we've got is a play on chicken and dumplings, involving 2 cans of Chunky-brand Chicken Noodle soup and a can of refrigerator biscuits. Anyone else heard of this? Anyone wanna volunteer your, ahem, unique family recipes?


Carciofi alla Romana

This simple dish needs more publicity. Carciofi alla Romana, or Roman artichokes, are in season during spring and are one of Rome’s most famous local dishes. The artichokes are cleaned, cut, and prepared in such a way that makes as much use of the plant as possible without the hard leaves and thorns. They’re soaked in lemon juice, then stuffed with herbs, garlic, salt and pepper before being braised in a deep pan with water and white wine until the liquids evaporate. The soft, succulent artichokes are then drizzled with olive oil and herbs again before being served.


BBQ U Mint Julep Ribs

Step 1: Make the rub: Place the iced tea mix, sugar, mint, paprika, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

Step 2: Make the glaze: Combine the mint jelly, lemon juice, butter, bourbon, and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking often, and cook until the mint jelly is dissolved and the mixture is syrupy, 5 minutes. Set the glaze aside.

Step 3: Prepare the ribs: Remove the thin, papery membrane from the back of each rack of ribs: Turn a rack meat side down. Insert a sharp implement, such as the tip of a meat thermometer, under the membrane (the best place to start is right next to the first rib bone). Using a dishcloth or pliers to gain a secure grip, pull off the membrane. Repeat with the other rack.

Step 4: Place the ribs on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the ribs on both sides with rub, rubbing it into the meat. Cover the ribs and store in the refrigerator while you set up your grill.

Step 5: Set up the grill for indirect grilling and preheat to medium. Brush and oil the grill grate.

Step 6: Arrange the ribs, bone side down, in the center of the grate over the drip pan away from the heat. If working on a charcoal grill and using wood chips, toss half on each mound of coals. Cover the grill and cook for 1 hour.

Step 7: Brush the ribs on both sides with the mint glaze. Recover the grill and continue cooking until the ribs are well-browned and cooked through, yet tender enough to pull apart with your fingers, 15 to 30 minutes more, or 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours in all. Brush the ribs once or twice more with glaze, and if using a charcoal grill, replenish the coals as needed. When the ribs are cooked, the meat will have shrunk back from the ends of the bones by about 1/4 inch.

Step 8: Transfer the ribs to a large platter or cutting board, and cut the racks in half, widthwise, or into individual ribs. Serve at once with the Bourbon Barbecue Sauce on the side.
