The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.
Today's Snackshot is of a mint julep. For whatever reason, Mint Julep Day falls on May 30, not Derby Day, giving us two days out of the year to really appreciate them. Mint juleps are a traditionally Southern drink, dating back to the early 19th century. However, Kentuckians popularized the drink later because of their passion for bourbon and, of course, the Kentucky Derby.
