The mint julep is considered a cliché Old South drink by some. But a good one is about as refreshing a cocktail as ever slaked a midsummer night’s thirst. It is best served in the classic metal cups, which get frosty on the outside if you make it right. I use those great small-batch bourbons in my mint juleps; Knob Creek or Blanton’s are particularly good.
