Step 1: Add mint Set aside a few mint leaves for garnish, and place the rest in the bottom of the glass. Step 2: Add simple syrup Pour in 1/2 an ounce of simple syrup. Tip Simple syrup is simply sugar water, made by dissolving 2 parts unrefined sugar into 1 part boiling water. Let cool before using. Step 3: Muddle combination Muddle the combination gently to unleash—but not bruise—the mint's scent, flavor, and overall essence in the glass. Tip A muddler is a wooden rod used to mash up ingredients. If you don't have one, the back of a spoon works just as well. Step 4: Add ice Fill the glass with crushed ice. Step 5: Add bourbon Add two ounces of bourbon. Step 6: Stir Stir the cocktail. Step 7: Garnish & serve Add the mint leaves and swizzle stick as garnish, and serve. Now it's time to get your bets down. Did You Know? The Mint Julep originally caught on in the colonial United States as a breakfast drink for farmers--it helped them wake up with a bang.
