1930 Swallows by Hon WM T Boothby

Juleps This popular beverage was invented in the Sunny Southland. It is a Punch or Cooler in character, but, since its origination, has become so popular it now deserves a classification of its own. A properly prepared Julep will have the glass well "frosted". To accomplish this, fill the glass with shaved ice and stir slowly until the frost appears upon the outside surface. Then drain out the excess water, refill with shaved ice and prepare the beverage. "Frosting" may be hastened by wrapping the glass in a clean, dry dish towel. Mint sprigs are the characteristic ingredient of this beverage. They may be crushed or not crushed. Most recipes call for bruising the mint, but as many connoisseurs prefer it not crushed, the preference of the guests may well be sought before preparing. Under either method new mint should be imbedded in the ice at frequent intervals and a Maraschino or green cherry, together with flakes of orange, added for decoration. Straws should be served. Glasses should be the low-base (10 ounce) tumbler, with flared rim (Julep glass).
