Most of us thought it's the table's ornament. Herb (mint) in a pewter cup? Almost there.
It's Las Flores's rendition of Mint Julep, my chosen drink for the night. 100 points for presentation. Made from mint, bourbon, sugar and water. It's supposed to have hibiscus, though the bourbon definitely dominated the entire cup. Stronger than your typical cocktail - not so much as pairing for red meat but good as a refreshment on a hot night.
Still, hands down for presentation.
