|2 • sprigs fresh mint|
|1/2 oz • simple syrup • (recipe below)|
|2 oz • good bourbon|
|• crushed ice|
In a highball glass, gently muddle one mint sprig with simple syrup. Add the bourbon. Strain into a julep cup, add crushed ice so it's heaping and garnish with other mint sprig.
You could also serve in the highball glass. Just add the ice to the muddled mint, simple syrup bourbon mixture and garnish with remaining mint sprig.
