I'd like to draw your attention on a few lines in billie holliday's song "You go to my head":

You go to my head
Like a sip of sparkling burgundy brew
And I find the very mention of you
Like the kicker in a julep or two.

Could you please help me in the translation of "a kicker in a julep" please?

    "Julep" is mint julep - HERE

    Another way of saying the sentence is:

    Like the extra kick/boost I get from drinking one or two mint juleps

    Come la botta da uno o due mint julep
