Sterling Silver Julep Cup
One of the great hallmarks of Southern Hospitality, the mint julep cup is known as a traditional gift to mark life milestones; graduation, a wedding, a horse race victor, or as a corporate show of appreciation. Mint Juleps are the quintessential Kentucky Derby beverage and this cup is the perfect size at 3.75 inches tall, and crafted of sterling silver for optimal enjoyment. A silver cup is still used now as it was back in the early 1800s because it is the silver that allows ice to form on the outside of the cup. The proper etiquette for drinking a mint julep is to hold the cup by either the band on the base or top lip so that your hand does not warm the cup. Did I just hear the 'Call to the Post'?! It's race time!
