Makes 1 (8-ounce) julep

How to Make It

Step 1

Place mint leaves and Mint Simple Syrup in a chilled julep cup. Gently press leaves against cup with back of spoon to release flavors. Pack cup tightly with crushed ice; pour bourbon over ice. Insert straw, place mint sprig directly next to straw, and serve immediately. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

Step 2

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Woodford Reserve Distiller's Select Bourbon.

Chef's Notes

Leftover simple syrup keeps refrigerated about one week and perfectly sweetens iced tea.
