2 cups sugar
2 cups water
Sprigs of fresh mint
Kentucky bourbon (Maker's Mark or Woodford Reserve preferred)
Silver Julep Cups (tall glasses can be substituted)
Make a simple syrup by boiling sugar and water together for five minutes. Cool and place in a covered container with six or eight sprigs of fresh mint, then refrigerate overnight. Make one julep at a time by filling a julep cup with crushed ice, adding one tablespoon mint syrup and two ounces of Kentucky bourbon. Stir rapidly with a spoon to frost the outside of the cup. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
