In Reno or in New Orleans, you’ll be hard pressed to find a craft bartender who doesn’t have the original julep with fresh mint leaves down pat. It’s a great choice for a hot Southern night, whether you drink it out of a go cup or a copper tumbler coated with frost.

....Or in French simply a Soixante Quinze (Seventy Five). The drink dates to World War I, and an early form was created in 1915 at the New York Bar in Paris—later Harry's New York Bar—by barman Harry MacElhone.

The drink was first concocted at the Old Absinthe House bar in 1874 by Cayetano Ferrer, and was served to famous customers such as Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, and General Robert E. Lee, just to name a few. Are you ready to be added to that list?
A New Orleans staple for about as long as the Sazerac. It is a refreshing and deceptively strong cocktail made with Cognac, lemon juice, maraschino liqueur, Cointreau, and Angostura bitters.
