Water is at the heart of everything we do at Maker’s Mark. Without it, we couldn’t even begin to make our bourbon. That’s why we are so passionate about water sustainability. Every day, 500 million straws are thrown away, polluting our waterways and oceans. To help combat this critical issue, we are encouraging everyone to use biodegradable straws this summer in their handmade cocktails. It’s a small change,  but it’s a start toward making a lasting, positive difference for our environment.

Plastic straws are out. Are you in?

Add all ingredients to a julep cup. Gently muddle mint to express the oils. Add crushed ice. Garnish with a mint sprig.
