3 to 5 mint leaves
1 tsp. powdered sugar
2 tsps. water
2 to 21/2 ozs. good Bourbon
1. Muddle (stir/gentle crush) four mint springs and sugar in the bottom of a julep glass.
2. Add water and continue to muddle. Add Woodford Reserve Bourbon.
3. Pack the julep glass with crushed ice. Add a mint spring for decoration and sipping straw.
Note: If a metal julep cup is used, be sure to use a wooden muddler (bottom of a wooden spoon) instead of metal spoon.
This will eliminate the possibility of any metal shavings getting into the drink or scratching the julep cup.
