Scope note
Silver or pewter cups traditionally used for mint juleps, a drink popularized in the American South and made with mint, bourbon, sugar, and water. The cup is a beaker in shape, having no handle and held only by the bottom and top edges of the cup, allowing frost to form on the outside of the cup when filled with the icy beverage. Mint juleps are today often served in various types of glass vessels.
