enjoying a mint julep. the perfect drink on a hot southern summer night.
i have an obsession with the mint julep. well with anything to do with alcohol.
it all started a few years back when a friend and i took a road trip through the deep south (mississippi, alabama, georgia and south carolina). during the the trip we hit up a bunch of small southern towns, watched a few movies about small southern towns, and tried to talk as we imagine one does coming from a small southern town, think to kill a mockingbird or midnight in the garden of good and evil or, of course, sweet home alabama. we used words like, hankerin' and reckon and i declare and genteel and apparition and libation. needless to say, the trip was alot of fun.
i do declare, i love the deep south.
