Department of Cocktails: The Faulkner Recipe

William Faulkner said a lot about drinking; which makes sense, given how much he wrote while drinking. As he once noted:

You see, I usually write at night. I always keep my whiskey within reach; so many ideas that I can’t remember in the morning pop into my head.

For all those wanting to know what the man’s favorite tipple was, it’s simple: Whiskey. Any kind. And here’s his preferred way of taking it (your basic mint julep, simple):

  • whiskey
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ice
  • mint
  • served in a metal cup
