Did you know the Mint Julep is one of the oldest cocktails in America?  Check out this video of mixologist Charlotte Voisey from NYC’ s downtown W Hotel demonstrating  how to make this classic Southern cocktail.  Check out the 21 Club’s Classic Mint Juleprecipe too.  And the key to a great margarita is fresh lime juice.  We’ve posted another great video of Chef Dennis Pitchford’s step by step directions for making a perfect margarita. And if you’re looking for an easy, low calorie version, read about the “Sinless Margarita” mix we reviewed a while back.  Yes, it’s a mix, but it’s made with fresh limes and skips the sugar.
