Background & History

"The Kentucky-born humorist Irvin S. Cobb once said, 'Any guy who'd put rye in a mint julep and crush the leaves would put scorpions in a baby's bed.' Taking this to heart, I rub the inside of the julep tin with mint leaves, then discard them before building the drink." - Brian Miller, Death & Co
