Jefferson cups

It was during a monogram challenge from Silver Magpies that I first learned of Jefferson cups. These cups, usually made of pewter, silver plate, or sterling, are replicas of eight silver plated cups that Thomas Jefferson had custom made by melting existing sterling that he owned. They have a nice weight to them, fit beautifully in the palm of your hand, and are perfect for anything served at room temperature.

We now have three of them and I can’t wait for the first snowy evening, when I’ll serve a small shot of Blanton’s bourbon and sip it from my porch in a Jefferson cup!
