Set of four stunning mint julep cups, perfect for toasting at your next celebration party. The authentic and traditional mint julep cup is made of silver or pewter and held only by the bottom and top edges of the cup. This allows frost to form and reduces the heat transferred from had to cup. The mint julep is believed to originate in the South during the 18th century. Today the tradition continues and no Derby day party is complete without a sprig of mint in a julep cup!
The silver plated cups are 4.5" tall and can be engraved. They come in an attractive mint green gift box with a Mint Julep recipe on the side of the box.
