Black History Month

February 01, 2023 12:00 AM until February 28, 2023 11:30 PM

John Dabney was an African-American mixologist born in 1824. As a bartender he became famous for his Mint Juleps, serving them at the Sweet Springs Resort in West Virginia. If Juleps were a favorite of the time period, Dabney's were a favorite among favorites. He even had special silver cups with his name emblazoned on them. "The Julep a la Dabney"  wrote a Kentucky journalist, "is a world-wide art bestowed upon personages whom he holds in high esteem."  Kachina is proud to serve the Julep a la Dabney  in recognition of Black History Month.
