Brennan’s Mint Julep Recipe
2 Springs of fresh mint
0.5 oz Simple Syrup*
2 oz Bourbon (your favorite)
In the bottom of a julep cup or old fashion glass muddle one mint sprig with simple syrup. Fill cup with crushed ice, add bourbon & swirl with bar spoon till the glass is frosty. Top with more ice. Garnish with sprig of mint. Dust with powdered sugar.
*Stir together equal parts of granulated sugar and boiling water. Stir until sugar is dissolved and liquid is clear. Chill before using. May be stored for several weeks if refrigerated.
Honey, raise that Julep cup in a toast to a good old Gulf Coast breeze & enjoy!
