The Mint Julep is a classic cocktail that is closely associated with the American South and is particularly popular in the state of Kentucky.

The cocktail is a simple yet delicious cocktail that is all about the quality of its ingredients. It is important to use fresh mint and good-quality bourbon in order to get the best possible flavor. Some people also like to add a splash of water or a few drops of bitters to the drink to help balance out the sweetness and the alcohol.

The Mint Julep has a long and storied history, and it has been enjoyed by everyone from Kentucky Derby attendees to Father of American Literature, Mark Twain.
