Mint Julep Cups
Mint + bourbon + sugar.
It's hard to say which we love more: Sweet mint juleps, or their pretty namesake pewter cups. These shiny cups are traditionally used for the chilled cocktail because the pewter allows frost to form on the outside of the cup. You can fill them with anything you like (our tip -- they work beautifully as a vase in a pinch).

Care & Notes
Wash your pewter by hand (never in a dishwasher) in warm, soapy water. Dry with a soft towel. Should your pewter ever need polishing, use a good quality pewter polisher. When storing your pewter, always wrap it in the original wrapping foam to avoid scratching. Never wrap pewter in tissue paper. Store your pewter cups standing upright to prevent warping. Do not cook or store food in your pewter, as damage will occur.
