- 4 to 5 mint sprigs (leaves only)
- 2 sugar cubes (or 1/2 ounce simple syrup)
- 2 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey
- Garnish: mint sprig
How to make
- Place the mint leaves and sugar or
simple syrup into a julep cup, collins
glass, or double old-fashioned glass.
- Muddle well to dissolve the sugar and
release the oil and aroma of the mint.
- Add the bourbon.
- Fill with crushed ice and stir well until the glass becomes frosty.
- Garnish with a mint sprig. Enjoy!
