Mint Julep (cocktail)

Mint Julep

It’s spring and the mint is coming up.  But because the temps are still a little chilly, it’s nice to have a drink that feels light but is still a little warming.  A nice mint julep fits the bill.


2 oz bourbon

2 tsp simple syrup

3-4 mint leaves

In a Rocks glass – muddle the mint into the simple syrup, add bourbon and a bunch of ice.  Stir and enjoy! You can rim the glass with a little simple syrup and powdered sugar if you’re feeling fancy!
