My Mint Julep

  • Put the mint leaves and the syrup in the bottom of a tall glass. With the handle of a wooden spoon, crush and mash the leaves to extract the flavor. Fill the glass with crushed (not cubed) ice. Pour in the bourbon.
  • With a long-handled spoon, jiggle (not stir) to chill and mix. Garnish with a sprig of mint. Sip.
