About the Event

While the Kentucky Derby made it famous, did you know that Vicksburg is the birthplace of the Mint Julep?  Our mint filled canyons and the Bourbon flowing down the Mississippi River on ships, the locals figured out the savory combination. Considering ice was a rare commodity in the Mississippi summer, and the silver goblets it was poured it, it was definitely a demonstration of wealth.  Where else would you want to learn how to make the perfect Southern libation than at Duff Green?
