A dram of spirituous liquor that has mint in it

The Mint Julep is the venerable "signature drink" of the Kentucky Derby. This year Churchill Downs is offering a premium Mint Julep to raise money for retired thoroughbreds. A sure thing at $1000!

The sweet cocktail will be made with one of the state's finest bourbons and served in a gold-plated cup with a silver straw to the first 50 people willing to put down the cash at the May 6 race. Mint from Morocco, ice from the Arctic Circle and sugar from the South Pacific will put this mint julep in a class of its own, the distillery selling the drink said.

On a related note I learn of yet another Disney bowdlerization. In my future cheertatorship their non-alcoholic abominations will be served only in plastic cups by law.
