Whether you’re Kentucky Derby-party hopping this weekend in an OTT hat or couldn’t care less about the race (LOL, join the club), there’s something kinda fun about an occasion that calls for fancier-than-usual cocktails—even if you’re just playing mixologist for a girlfriend or two before going out on Saturday night.

This weekend, get in an extra-springy mood by forgoing your usual pinot grigio or vodka soda and whipping up one of these 10 updated mint julep recipes instead. They’re fresh, pretty, and such a sophisticated way to get a little buzzed—especially if you’re day drinking. (You won’t want to down that classy cocktail too fast, so it’ll be easier to pace yourself. Right?)
