Mint Julep

This is perhaps one of the most refreshing cocktails of all time.  Smooth whiskey infused with mint, and served in a frosty aluminum cup. Ingredients:

3 oz bourbon
5-6 healthy sprigs of mint
superfine or granulated sugar to taste


Muddle mint and sugar to release the mint essence, and let stand for a 10 – 15 minutes.   Transfor to a chilled mint julep cup and add crushed ice and bourbon.
