Bourbon has been on super sale at one of our favorite liquor stores and our mint plants are already beginning to take off. We think this might be our drink of the summer. But no we don’t plan to buy the glasses made just for this concoction anytime soon. Our cabinets already runneth over.
- 2 oz bourbon
- 5 mint leaves
- 1 tbsp simple syrup
Tear four mint leaves and mix with simple syrup in the bottom of a tumbler using a muddler or back of a spoon (or mint julep cup if you have one.) Add crushed ice and bourbon. Garnish with mint leaf.
