New Orleans Mint Julep Recipe

New Orleans Mint Julep Recipe

6 Fresh Mint Leaves
1 Tbsp Simple Syrup 
2 oz. Bourbon      
Crushed Ice 
Wooden Spoon
Rocks Glass or a silver cup    

Combine the mint and simple syrup in the bottom of the glass. Using the handle end of the spoon, 
smash the leaves into the simple syrup . Add the Bourbon, then the top with lots of crushed ice,
 stir, trying to keep the mint leaves on the bottom of the glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint and serve.

***Simple Syrup  1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup sugar, cooked just until the sugar disolves. Make a batch and
keep the left over in the fridge. 

You need to use crushed ice because it keeps the smashed leaves at the bottom.
