Bourbon, mint and simple syrup. It’s a simple drink that is a must have on Kentucky Derby day or when lounging on a summer day!
- 2 oz bourbon
- 1 oz simple syrup
- 3 fresh mint leaves
- crushed leaves
Add mint leaves and simple syrup in whiskey glass or mint julep cup and muddle with a cocktail muddler. Fill glass with crushed ice. Pour bourbon over top. Stir with a cocktail stirrer and enjoy!
Use a bourbon that you would drink straight. I enjoy Maker’s Mark with this.
