Mint+Julep-1638

Description

The Mint Julep is a mixed alcoholic drink, or cocktail originating in the Southern United States. The word 'julep' is derived from the Persian 'julab' meaning rose water. There are a number of ways of making a mint julep. All are served over crushed ice in a julep glass or pewter/sterling silver julep cup with a narrow cocktail straw. It is correct to use the straw when drinking this cocktail.
