Simple Syrup

1 cup water

2 cups sugar

Place in a pan and heat until a simple syrup forms and all sugar crystals are dissolved.  While still hot and cooling, add three, bruised, three inch pieces of mint.  This will lightly flavor the syrup.

To: 1 cup of Kentucky Sour Mash Bourbon

Add:  ½ cup simple syrup

Stir.

Pour.

Add mint leaves to garnish.

A silver, fresh from the freezer, Mint Julep cup is traditional.  A mason jar works just as well.  Tally Ho!
