Mint Julep Recipe

Mint Julep

  • Make a syrup of half water and half sugar. One cup of each goes a long way. Heat it until the sugar melts.
  • Pick about a cup of mint and let it steep in the warm syrup off the stove for an hour or two.
  • Crush lots of ice and fill a small cup with ice.
  • Pour half a shot of sugar-mint syrup and one shot of bourbon to taste.  Keep stirring until the cup gets frosted.  Cut a straw to just above the top of the cup and add a sprig of mint to the top so you can smell it when you drink it.
