Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 ounces bourbon
  • 3/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 45 mint leaves plus more for garnish

Instructions

  1. Add mint leaves and simple syrup to a mint julep cup or double old fashioned glass. Muddle mint leaves to release the oils. Simple sugar should start to have a greenish hue.
  2. Add bourbon and stir.
  3. Fill glass with roughly 1 cup of crushed ice and stir until mixed. Top with a mound of additional crushed ice and serve with a mint leaf garnish.

Notes

If your fridge doesn’t dispense crushed ice, use the pulse setting on a blender or fill a gallon-sized ziploc bag and manually crush by hitting with rolling pin.
