Mint Julep

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 2 tender sprigs of Mint
  • .5 ounce Simple Syrup
  • 2 ounces Bourbon Whiskey

In the bottom of a highball glass or a silver julep cup, muddle one sprig of mint with the sugar syrup. Fill with crushed ice and add the bourbon. Swirl with a bar spoon until the outside of the glass frosts. Top up with more ice and garnish with the remaining sprig of mint.
