Sip and Dream..

One of the seminars that interest me very much at this years Tales of the Cocktail is the Julep Story from 1488 to Present.

This seminar is held by spirits historians Anistatia Miller and Jared Brown who have traced the julep all the way back to the 15th century and also they are going to show us Julep recipes from London, Edinburgh, and Dublin that feature some amazing so called “lost” ingredients and we will be shown how the recipe was simplified to become the recipe we know today. That is something i didn`t know – that the recipe was simplified, so i`m looking forward to find out how.

The Mint Julep is such a quintessential southern cocktail with a very interesting history which I´m sure we will learn more about than we already know at this seminar.

Of course we will also drink Mint Juleps!

This session is moderated by Anistatia Miller, Jared Brown and Charles Vexenat.
