National Mint Julep Day
I like regal. I like refined. I like classic. Take all that, mix it in a shaker, pour it over ice and you have a Mint Julep. I do not think there is a more classic concoction.
As a tribute to National Mint Julep Day I thought I would share the Foodies and Fatties approved list of where you can get the bourbon beverage in the great ol’ U-S of A. Cheers!
Sissy’s Southern Kitchen & Bar

A New Urban BBQ in the Heart of the Gold Coast has a Bourbon menu as impressive as the bbq itself. Their Julep features Buffalo Trace bourbon. Yes please!

The Upper East Side got drinks yall! At JBird’s you can find the Julep clearly organized under “Juleps and Fixes”. The most unique part of their Julep has to be the demerara sugar which is a rich brown sugar.
Round Robin Bar

Washington, DC 20004
Do you enjoy the art of traditional cocktails? Then you’ll fall in love with watching them press fresh and tender mint leaves against the goblet with the back of a silver spoon and mellow bourbon flows over cracked ice.
Mint Julep Tours
When one Julep just won’t do; go to the source! Take a tour of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail in Louisville, KY.
