Today's cocktail is one I've been talking about all week; the Mint Julep of course! Typically associated with the Southern states, they are also the official cocktail of the Kentucky Derby. They are more typically served in a tall collins glass, however historically they were sipped from silver or pewter cups like the one shown here in order to get that delightfully frosty chill on the outside. Now go off and enjoy the races, or just your weekends, and sip responsibly! Cheers!
