Saturday could very well be a national holiday for drinkers, with Cinco de Mayo celebrations colliding with Kentucky Derby-watching parties. It's not hard to find a good margarita around town -- but a great mint julep? That's a much more elusive creature. Still, I recently found a perfect version -- and it's even served in the quintessential mint julep glass.
Can you guess where I'm drinking?
