If you're not lucky enough to have inherited pewter julep cups, you can check them out over at amazon. We can't vouch for any brand in particular, but we do know that it is really fun to drink out of the frosty cups!
- 3 sprigs of fresh mint
- 1 1/2 tsp powdered sugar
- 3 oz bourbon
Place 8 or so mint leaves in the bottom of a pre-chilled julep cup or double old-fashioned glass. Add sugar and muddle a bit to bruise the mint leaves. Fill the glass about 2/3 with crushed ice, and pour in bourbon. Stir everything together (a julep cup will frost), and then pack glass with more ice until it is full. Top drink with a lush sprig of mint. Makes 1 drink.
