Mint Julep

Recipe adapted from Leo Robitschek, Eleven Madison Park, New York City

Yield: 1 cocktail

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: N/A

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

5 large fresh mint leaves

½ ounce of demerara syrup (1 part demerara sugar to 1 part water, boiled until the sugar dissolves)

2½ ounces bourbon, preferably Woodford Reserve

Crushed ice

Sprig of mint, for garnish

Directions

Gently tap the mint leaves against the palm of your hand to release their aroma. Rub the leaves along the inside of a julep cup and drop them inside.
