Julep Cup Love

While visiting Monticello, C bought me my first julep cup to kick start my collection. I love the idea of having acquired enough to bring them out and serve a party with them. Even the history behind the mint julep is fun:
"The mint julep originated in the southern United States, probably during the eighteenth century. U.S. Senator Henry Clay of Kentucky introduced the drink to Washington, D.C., at the Round Robin Bar in the famous Willard Hotel during his residence in the city." -Wikipedia
