About this Cocktail
Extremely simple classic Mint Julep. Just like under the Twin Spires. This one involves making a big batch of syrup so that you can pay tribute to the Derby champ and say: "I'll Have Another".
Cup of sugar
Cup of fresh mint leaves
Cup of water
Sprig of fresh mint
Boil one cup of water adding one cup of sugar and one cup of fresh washed mint leaves
Boil the mixture for two minutes stirring often and strain out leaves. Allow syrup to cool to room temp.
Fill a shaker with ice and add 2 and 1/2 tbl of the newly created syrup
Add six (yes six) oz of Bourbon to shaker and shake
Pour out three drinks into cocktail glasses and garnish with fresh mint sprig. When done drinking the first yell, "I'll Have Another". And repeat. Put $$ down on a 15-1 colt and call a taxi
