    Wild Turkey 91 Bourbon Bitters, Sugar & Lemon Peel


    For much of the 19th Century – and a few years prior – the quintessential American drink was a slug of Holland Gin, brandy or good American Whiskey, hit with a few dashes of bitters, a shade of sugar and a splash of water. By 1880, the Golden Age of cocktails was in full swing, and exotic ingredients were all the rage. Yet, the traditional drinkers of the day still wanted the Cocktail they came to know back when the U.S. ended at the Mississippi and Americans ate bears.


    They wanted booze, sugar and bitters on ice. They wanted the Old-Fashioned Cocktail.

    Evan Williams Bourbon, Bottled-in-Bond Mint & Sugar


    The mighty Mint Julep was the first American drink that didn’t originate back in England. It is first recorded in Virginia in 1770 as a rum drink. American whiskey was still a work-in-progress. After the revolution, it became a brandy drink – either French Cognac or Old Peach Brandy, the pride of Southern distillers. In the hands of the great African American bartenders of the South, the Brandy Julep was an elaborate, artistic showpiece. Only after the Civil War did the Julep achieve its classic form: whiskey, sugar and mint almost to the point of excess.


    A proper Mint Julep is more than a drink. It is an occasion.
