On 18 November 1928, Walt Disney released a cartoon called Steamboat Willie, featuring a character named Mickey Mouse.
Though this was not Mickey's first big-screen outing, Disney World Florida celebrates the little mouse's birthday on this day. It's hard to imagine Florida without Mickey. So we're toasting Minnie's beloved with a minty thing, that classic of the Southern States, a Mint Julep, first described by Charles Joseph Latrobe of the Anti-Temperance Society in Saratoga, Florida, back in 1833.
