Mint Julep in Liquid and Dessert Form at Rex 1516
Tonight and all day tomorrow the Mint Juleps are on special for $8 at Rex 1516. The South Street bar and restaurant has the timeless combo of whiskey, mint, sugar and club soda on its menu all the time but this weekend, a special derby version with peach-infused cognac, will also be available. Additionally the cocktail makes an appearance on Rex 1516’s dessert menu. The Mint Julep dessert pairs a rich mint chocolate pot de crème, topped with candied mint leaves and a pecan macaroon filled with whiskey cream frosting.
To accompany all that sweetness, Rex 1516 is offering bacon-scallion hush puppies with Cajun ailoi for just $5 for an order of five.
