Step back to a bygone age: Oak Alley Plantation. "In the cosy [sic] Oak Alley restaurant I relax with a tasty lunch on the veranda and enjoy the house specialty of mint julep. This long drink consists of bourbon whiskey, crushed ice, sugar and sprigs of mint. It's decadent enough for me to momentarily segue back into that antebellum period and daydream that I'm lying under an old oak tree up the lazy river. It's a beautiful vision of a bygone age."
