An exceptionally old cocktail, the Julep was originally prescribed by physicians to cure “sickness of the stomach” and was introduced to the Washington, DC area in the early 1800s by Senator Henry Clay of Kentucky. Now the official cocktail of the Kentucky Derby, guests can enjoy Occidental’s frozen Julep leading up to, during, and after the Kentucky Derby on May 7.
