Julep is a drink, favoured in the southern U.S. (did any of you see the movie, Mame? )

According to Wikipedia
The Mint Julep is a mixed alcoholic drink, or cocktail, distinctive to the southern United States.

A mint julep is traditionally made of four ingredients: mint, bourbon, sugar, and water. In the use of sugar and mint, it is similar to the mojito.

The drink was probably invented sometime in the 18th Century. U.S. Senator Henry Clay introduced the drink to Washington D.C. and the northern United States. The word “julep” is derived from the Persian “julab” meaning rose water.

Traditionally, mint juleps were often served in silver or pewter cups, and held only by the bottom and top edges of the cup. This allows frost to form on the outside of the cup, which some would find a sign of gentility. Others merely find it nice to look at.

So I guess we drank our juleps from these glasses.  8)   :lol:

Thanks, Carolyn.  :)

I had googled myself into a trance to get the various names of the glass and had to get going to make a reservation in time.

(No, I haven't seen the movie btw.)  :?
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

Hello again,

I did some Googling and looked through a number of old Libbey catalogs for commercial use glass, but couldn't find your glasses. I don't have anything from the 80s on to check out, so I can't tell you if your glasses had a special name or not. The catalog order info I do have on Libbey glass made for commercial, hotel\tavern\restaurant use only gives each line a number, no special pattern name like they do for their glass sold for in home use. From what I have seen these being called by sellers I can only assume that they made up the different names themselves for selling purposes and others are just copying what they have seen some other seller say.

If I find out something more definite  I'll drop it off here.  --- Mike
