About this Cocktail

Don’t fuck up this classic with simple syrup. It’s basically a bourbon snow cone with a bunch of mint and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. More details on my bog: http://drinkingandthinking.davehebb.com/mint-julep/

Ingredients:
  • 2-3 oz. bourbon (good and strong!)
  • 4-10 fresh mint leaves (depending on your taste)
  • 1 tsp. powdered sugar
  • 1 cup crushed or shaved ice
  • 1 mint sprig for garnish
Preparation:

Start with a big thick glass or metal cup, preferably silver plated, pewter or copper (keeps it frosty so ice doesn’t melt) and muddle the mint with sugar and a few drops of bourbon in the bottom of the cup with a wooden spoon or muddler. Fill with ice, add bourbon, stir briskly and garnish with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and mint sprig.
