Assemble your supplies. It's proper to use a pewter tumbler for mint juleps, but in a pinch any glass will do. I'm using a double-rocks glass here.
Add 2-3 mint leaves, 1.5 table spoons simple syrup, and a splash of water to your glass. See my profile for my mint-infused simple syrup recipe.
Muddle the leaves gently with a spoon to allow them to release their oils into the water/ syrup mixture.
Fill your glass with crushed ice. To crush my ice, I use a snow cone maker. The ice comes out a little too fine, but it works. In a pinch you can place ice cubes in a towel and break with a hammer.
Add two shots of bourbon. It's traditional to use Evan Williams, but any bourbon that costs between $10 and $24 a fifth will turn out just fine.
After two shots bourbon added.
Stir gently with party straws.
Cap glass with more crushed ice. Add a sprig of mint as a garnish.
Find a place in the sun and enjoy your mint julep.

I do declare, this looks so delightful! I do believe I have the vapors...
Mojito is definitely one I'd like to make as well! Thank you for bringing back memories! I remember early 60's to 70's my grandmother would make this. Thanks!
Going to try this soon!
Definitely trying this one out once the weather warms up!
Looks great. Can you make another guide on Mojito's? 😄
