Posted by on

Edna Lewis was a true icon, both in and out of the kitchen. It's no surprise that the signature drink at her 80th birthday party was the iconic mint julep, a classic American cocktail that packs a punch. In honor of Edna, the Spicewalla team recreated a few of her favorite things, like her buttermilk biscuits with strawberry preserves, and of course, her boozy beverage of choice---the mint julep.
