With Louisville undergoing such a bourbon revival I often get asked about who invented which cocktail. (This is usually after the Sidebar breaks out one of their special barrel aged cocktails for the guest to sample.)
I came across the following article that I wanted to share titled ‘THE BIRTHPLACES OF MORE THAN 30 FAMOUS COCKTAILS MAP’ that I thought I’d share. It does an excellent job locating where some of the classics came from. Please not that while The Mint Julep is associated with the Kentucky Derby and most visits to Louisville it actually originated elsewhere.
