Mint Julep

Mint Julep

2 cups sugar

2 cups water

Sprigs of fresh mint

Crushed ice

Old Forester Kentucky Bourbon

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 Old Forester Kentucky Bourbon. Stir rapidly with a spoon to frost the outside of the cup. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.

I have another recipe of a Vietnamese Lemonade Mint Julep Shrub Cocktail.
