This delightful mint julep recipe is a clever celebration of Derby Day with a particularly Portland spin on it. Hailing from Portland's Sellwood neighborhood, this premium coffee-infused beverage is served in an authentic stainless steel julep cup and is accented with a perfect sprig of mint.
The Coffee Mint Julep is made with Either/Or's signature cold brew Ethiopia Guji, which is roasted at the city's Roseline Coffee shop. The drink involves some of the quaint cafe's house-made mint syrup and carries the chocolatey undertones of the Ethiopian brew.
The Coffee Mint Julep is one of the charming coffee bar's specialty drinks, a part of its monthly rotational menu that celebrates old-fashioned cocktails. Other drinks included on the Either/Or special menu are a Cascara Negroni and a Coffee Old Fashioned.
