Mint Julep - simple and great!

Prepare at least a day in advance.
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
About 12 sprigs of mint
Crushed or shaved ice
Powdered sugar
Premium quality Kentucky bourbon

First, make a simple syrup: Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan, and boil for a few minutes to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat.

Bruise the mint leaves, add to syrup and place in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

After it has chilled, run syrup through a sieve to remove the leaves.

Chill glasses in the freezer for a few hours. Remove and fill with ice (its vital that the ice is crushed or shaved). Sprinkle a pinch or two of powdered sugar over the ice and then pour about two tablespoons (depending on how sweet you like your drink) of syrup over the ice. Follow that with 2 oz. of bourbon.

Stir, garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy!
