This is possibly one of the oldest mixed drinks of all time. While it is now widely recognised to be made using American Whiskies, it is perceived to have initially come from the Middle-East where it was made using Arrack, sugar and rose petal (and was known as the ‘Julab’). As the concoction travelled and reached Western Europe, Arrack was substituted by Cognac and the indigenous mint was used over rose petals. The Julep was born.
