Here's three places in Buffalo where you can get a mint julep on Derby Day

Mint julep at Gordon's Bar

By Andrew Z. Galarneau

Here's three places where you can watch the Kentucky Derby while sippin' on a sweet cocktail of bourbon and mint.

Gordon's Bar, 2263 Delaware Ave. For $5, a julep made with Bulleit bourbon, and you get to keep the promotional cup, shown above. (While supplies last.) There is an Off-Track Betting parlor a block away, on the other side of Delaware Ave., if you're feeling lucky.

Mes Que, 1420 Hertel Ave. The julep here will be made with Bulleit bourbon too, and you get to keep the cup. (Again, while supplies last.)

Duke's Bohemian Grove Bar, 253 Allen St. No promotional cups here. But they do have a bartender from Lexington, Kentucky, who will muddle your mint.

EDITED TO ADD: Not in Buffalo, but Craft Tap House, 701 Main St., East Aurora, is serving mint juleps this weekend.
