Mint Julep (Southern Style)
A Bourbon drink.
- In silver mug or collins glass, dissolve powdered sugar with water.
- Fill with finely shaved ice and add Bourbon.
- Stir until glass is heavily frosted, adding more ice if necessary. (Do not hold glass with hand while stirring.)
- Decorate with sprigs of fresh mint so that the tops are about two inches above the rim of the glass.
- Use short straws so that it will be necessary to bury nose in mint, which is intended for scent rather than taste.
