Classic Mint Julep
This Classic Mint Julep has only three ingredients, packs a punch and is oh so refreshing!
- 2 ounces bourbon
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
- 6 mint leaves plus sprigs for garnish
In the bottom of a rock's glass or mint julep cup, muddle the mint leaves with the simple syrup.
Top with crushed ice.
Pour the bourbon over the ice and stir.
Top with more ice and garnish with a mint sprig.
Can use 1 teaspoon of sugar in place of the simple syrup, just muddle it with the mint leaves.
Crushed ice is necessary. This is a strong drink and the crushed ice will melt as you sip the drink, keeping it smooth and frosty!
