Kentucky Derby Day AtTheVault atPfaff's
Since Saturday was the 137th racing of the KentuckyDerby,I decided to find a location where I could enjoy a Mint Julep or two before going into work. Luckily for me,The Vault at Pfaff'swashaving a Derby party just down the block from the bar.SoI went by to say hi to the guys and gals. The party down in the Vault was already in full swing when I arrived. There were many widebrimmed ladies hats and surprisingly very few seersucker suits. But since this is a blog aboutcocktails and drinking instead of fashion I'llmove on to the cocktails. For the event there was aspecial Kentucky Derby themed cocktail list with three specialty cocktails. I had the two that werethe most diverse of the trio. How can I start the festivities without having THE cocktail of the Derby:The Mint Julep.The Mint Julep is a very simple cocktail to make. Usually you would make it in a Copper 
Since I had never had a Mint Julep before, I was curious as to how it tasted. The cocktail was niceand light. There was also a subtle sweetness to the cocktail that seemed to mingle well with thebourbon. Since I had to go to work right after, I tried to pace myself since I could see myself quickly sucking the Mint Julep down. On a hot summer day that can be a dangerous thing to do.The second cocktail on the list
(which I didn't try)
was a Peach Mint Julep which containedLarceny Bourbon, Combier Peche Liqueur, Simple Syrup, Fresh Mint and House Made PeachBitters. Why didn't I try it? I wanted to try out the third cocktail on the list which didn't containBourbon.The third cocktail on the list was The Pineapple Julep which contained Bols Genever, House MadeRaspberry Syrup and Fresh Pineapple Puree.Mint JulepPineapple Julep

 According to theBols Genever website:
The heart of Bols Genever is a precious whisky-like triple grain distillate madeof corn, wheat and rye, which the Dutch call Maltwine. This flavor-rich distillateis carefully blended with a juniper-berry distillate and brought to 42% alcohol,a percentage carefully selected by our master distiller for a perfect combinationof aroma and mouth feel...In the 19th Century, the import of genever was six times bigger than gin and many cocktails that are now made with gin,originally were mixed with genever.
The Genever was mixed with the Raspberry Syrup and when mixed with the Pineapple Puree andCrushed ice made for an interesting cocktail. The taste of the Genever and Raspberry wassomething I wasn't expecting and really can't describe. It was like having a raspberry flavored ginsince most people have said that genever is an older form of gin. The addition of the Pineapplepuree gave the cocktail a bit more of heft and body.Like the Mint Julep, this was a light and refreshing cocktail that could be very dangerous if consumed in a unmoderated way. Slow and steady definitely wins the race...except for the Derbycontestants. ;)I highly recommend the Vault at Pfaff's. It is an nice space that has a tremendous selection of spirits and varied cocktails. Go and check it out next time you're in New York City.Until Then Happy DrinkingSisco Vanilla
