I have recently discovered Mint Juleps, a old Southern favorite. I had never had one before attending a Mint Julep party at a historic 1833 Greek Revival house called Oakleigh in Mobile about a month ago. I have never been much of a bourbon whiskey drinker but I love sweet drinks. Mint Juleps have become my new favorite drink as it is mixed with simple syrup! I have had one just about every day and celebrated my birthday Aug 2 with this traditional Southern drink!
