      give a fellow a chance!

      Ummmmm, how much credibility do you give your source? Here's another
      version:

      "The drink was probably invented sometime in the 18th Century. U.S.
      Senator Henry Clay (Whig-Kentucky) introduced the drink to Washington
      D.C. at the Round Robin Bar in the famous Willard Hotel during his
      residence in the city. The word 'julep' is derived from the Persian
      'julab' meaning rose water."
