Mint Julep

A Mint Julep is a Bourbon based cocktail that also contains sugar syrup, crushed ice, and of course, fresh mint. It is thought that the Mint Julep originated in the southern United States, during the eighteenth century.

Traditionally, spearmint is the mint of choice used in a Mint Julep, especially if you come from Kentucky. However, there are plenty of recipes that just call for the use of mint leaves, not specifically spearmint.

Last Word

A gin-based cocktail that was listed on the menu of the Detroit Athletic Club in 1916. It fell out of favour but enjoyed a renewed popularity after being rediscovered by the bartender Murray Stenson in 2004 during his tenure at the Zig Zag Café.

The Last Word is made up of equal amounts of gin, green Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur and freshly pressed lime juice and has a pretty pale green hue. It’s a sharp, pungent drink and a good palate cleanser.
