The Ultimate Mint Julep

The perfect drink for your Kentucky Derby celebrations. Cheers!

1 oz simple syrup

7 mint leaves

2 oz Kentucky Bourbon

2 oz water

Combine syrup and mint in a glass, and lightly muddle. Fill glass with ice, Bourbon, and water; add more ice if needed. Garnish with a big stem of fresh mint and a long straw.

This drink is traditionally served in a silver mint julep cup, but can be served in an 8- to 10-oz glass.
