Mint Julep recipe

I went to Red Box yest and had this drink..really liked the taste and it packs quite a punch. Here's how you make it:

Ingredients Needed:

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • fresh Mint
  • crushed Ice
  • Bourbon (2 ounces per serving)
Make a simple syrup by boiling sugar and water together for five minutes. Cool and place in a covered container with six or eight sprigs of fresh mint, then refrigerate overnight. Make one julep at a time by filling a julep cup with crushed ice, adding one tablespoon mint syrup and two ounces of Whisky. Stir rapidly with a spoon to frost the outside of the cup. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
