Stepping into Julep is like stepping out onto a back porch. The place feels made of lace and sunshine, practically oozing Southern charm. The latest in Bobby Heugel’s Clumsy Butcher group, it’s run by the effervescent Alba Huerta who is the brain behind this temple of whiskey, Juleps (natch) and all things Southern.

What to drink
Whichever of the house Julep variations strikes your fancy. If it’s still around, grab a Cherry Bounce Sour (bourbon, lemon, egg white) while you’re at it. "Bounce" is a traditional preservation method combining cherries with sugar, booze, and spices.
Do you remember that Pappy Van Winkle heist a while back? Not saying it was Alba, but it was definitely Alba.
