It’s a hot one, folks. With blood-boiling temperatures rippling up the East Coast, let’s take a literary stroll into a much, much hotter land — the Deep South — and have a nice cold drink. Why not a julep? It worked for Faulkner! Courtesy of our friends at the Migrant Book Club, check out this picture of Faulkner’s own mint julip recipe glimpsed at his home Rowan Oak:

whiskey + 1 tsp sugar + ice + mint.
served in a metal cup.

What’s so awesome about this is, of course, the lack of measuring instructions on the whiskey. How much? As much as you like! Go for it, friends.

  1. Now I know this isn’t exactly germane to my writing women blog, but I like Faulkner and I like mint juleps and though it is cold and rainy in London, this blog made me feel a bit summery!
