May 30th is Mint Julep Day

National Mint Julep Day is celebrated annually on May 30.  Each year, on this day, people around the country join together for a glass of  mint julep!  This refreshing southern classic is a traditional drink of the Kentucky Derby.

Traditionally a mint julep is made with mint leaf, bourbon, sugar and water.  In the Southern states, where mint julep is more associated with the cuisine, spearmint is the mint of choice.  Preparation of the drink may vary from one bartender to another.

It is believed that the mint julep originated in the southern United States sometime during the 18th century.
The term “julep” is generally defined as a sweet drink, particularly one used as a vehicle for medicine.
During the 19th century Americans also enjoyed gin-based julep.
Each year almost 120,000  mint julep is served at Churchill Downs over the two-day period of the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby.
May, 2008 – Churchill Downs unveiled the world’s largest mint julep glass. ( 6-foot  tall)
