Mint julep #2

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 Sprigs mint
2 teaspoons Sugar
Crushed ice
Jiggers bourbon

You can use a highball glass for this drink, but if you do, it won't frost. Traditionally, a silver julep cup is used.

Put 6 sprigs of mint in glass with 2 teaspoons of sugar. Muddle gently with the back of a wooden spoon until mixture forms a paste. Fill halfway with crushed ice, add 1½ jiggers of bourbon. Don't stir. Fill rest of the way wtih crushed ice. Stick it in the freezer until the glass frosts.

Garnish with mint sprigs and a straw.
