Mint Juleps are usually sipped on while donning large hats at the horse races. But it’s time to let this cocktail shine all summer long while lounging at the beach or at your next BBQ party!

The InterContinental Los Angeles has concocted a Mint Julep with a tropical twist so you can feel those #summervibes whenever you want. Pineapple, cucumber, and refreshing mint and lime make up this delish cocktail — it’s likely you won’t go back to the original Mint Julep.
