The proportion of syrup to bourbon can be adjusted to suit your tastes.


  • About 30 leaves of fresh mint
  • 3 cups of water
  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 3 cups of bourbon


  1. Place double old-fashioned glasses or silver mint julep cups in the freezer to chill.
  2. Bruise mint leaves in the bottom of a saucepan. Add water and sugar. Heat at medium-high until sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly.  Allow to the syrup to sit for 3 hours or place in a sealed container and refrigerate overnight.

  4. Garnish with a mint sprig.
