History:

The Mint Julep is a cocktail with deep cultural roots in the southern United States, specifically in Kentucky, where it has been named the official drink of the Kentucky Derby. However, its origins date back even further, and it is believed to have its roots in the Arab world.

 

The term "julep" is derived from the Persian word "gulab" and the Arabic word "julab," both meaning "rosewater." Originally, a julep was a sweet drink made from water and rose petals. It was used in the Middle East as a medicinal drink and was brought to Europe during the Middle Ages.

In the United States, early versions of the mint julep were also used for medicinal purposes. The drink was first referenced in the US in the late 18th century, but it did not contain bourbon at the time. Instead, it was made with cognac or rum, and was consumed as a morning pick-me-up for farmers.

By the 19th century, the mint julep had evolved into a recreational drink rather than a medicinal one. The traditional recipe calls for mint leaf, bourbon, sugar, and water. Over time, bourbon became the primary spirit of choice, particularly in the southern United States where bourbon production was, and still is, a significant industry.

In 1938, the Mint Julep was named the official drink of the Kentucky Derby, one of the oldest and most famous horse races in the United States. The race attracts over 150,000 attendees each year, and it is estimated that over 120,000 mint juleps are served over the two-day event. The mint julep has become so synonymous with the Kentucky Derby that it is now commonly served in a silver or pewter cup and is often garnished with a sprig of mint, paying homage to the drink’s heritage and to the southern traditions.

In the 21st century, the Mint Julep remains a classic cocktail that evokes the charm and hospitality of the South. Its history mirrors the evolution of American cocktail culture, from medicinal remedy to recreational staple.
