Mint Julep Recipe & History

Mint Julep Recipe & History

This true Kentucky tradition we’ve come to associate with the first Saturday in May, and the Kentucky Derby, has a presence in our culinary history that stretches back long before the racetrack at Churchill Downs was erected. You can actually go back as far as 1803 to understand how this simple chilled combination of bourbon, mint and sugar came to be. It seems that the first mention of a Mint Julep showed up in John Davis’ book, Travels of Four Years and a Half in the United States: 1798-1802, where Davis defines the Mint Julep as A dram of spiritous liquor that has mint in it, taken by Virginians of a morning. Minnick notes, “By liquor, he was referring to whiskey.”

Gentlemen (dressed to the 9's in their seersucker, a fabric created to beat the heat) and ladies have enjoyed this refreshing and simple libation for years at the Kentucky Derby, since1875.  But it really became an icon, in 1938 when the drinks sold for $.38 each and were served in a souvenir glass.
