Thousands of dollars, expensive mint julep!

A mint julep could cost you, well a mint, at this weekend's Kentucky Derby.

For years, bourbon maker Woodford Reserve has raised over $354,000 in charity donations from sales of the drink.

This year, instead of the $8 price, Woodford Reserve says for $1,000 you can get the track tradition in a sterling silver cup that includes an engraved horse and rider, a gold-plated garland of roses and a gold-plated straw.

The company is also selling even fancier drinks and cups for $2,000-$5,000.
