There's a new mint julep shaking things up at the Kentucky Derby

Posted: Updated:
The Kentucky Derby's shaking things up with a thousand-dollar cup.

The cup contains a carefully created concoction, a marvelous mint julep at the steep price of 1-thousand dollars.

The Derby's done this for years, to raise money for charity.

But for 2015 distillers are mixing it up with new ingredients, and a newly-designed cup.

This is no carefully-guarded secret recipe: it starts with sprigs of "chocolate" mint.  

Then add two ounces of Double Oaked in the cocktail shaker and some coconut palm sugar syrup, and give it a shake.
