The horses are fast, the hats are big and the drinks are flowing. For a take on that classic southern favorite, the mint julep, and two other refreshing cocktails for Derby Day, we looked to Washington-based elixirs company Element Shrub and organic spirits line Art in the Age for their race-appropriate concoctions.

For a crafty take on the mint julep:

Lemon Mint Rhubarb Julep
1 oz Rhubarb
1/2 oz Lemon Mint shrub
4 sprigs fresh mint
Splash of Bourbon (Bulleit)
1 cup crushed ice

1. Muddle 2 sprigs fresh mint with lemon mint shrub with 1/4 cup crushed ice
2. Add AITA Rhubarb
3. Top with a splash of bourbon (1/4 oz)
4. Stir
5. Add remaining ice and garnish with 2 sprigs fresh mint
6. Let ice melt and enjoy slowly
