Good Libations: Mint Julep

Mint Julep

10-15 mint leaves
1.5 Tbsp. simple syrup
1/2 cup bourbon (seriously, half a cup)

Pull about 10 mint leaves off their stems. If you're using a glass instead of a julep cup, rim it with sugar first, then add the leaves and the simple syrup and bruise the leaves just a little bit with a muddler. Fill the glass with crushed ice, then the bourbon (yes, the full half cup of it). Give it a quick stir, once is probably enough. Garnish with the rest of the mint.

Receipe from Saveur
