Mint Julep (Simplified)
Drink Type: Cocktail
Toss the sugar into a glass. Add the Bulleit Bourbon. Stir until the sugar is incorporated. Break up 3 mint sprigs into small pieces and drop them into the glass. Take ice and put it into a ziplock bag. Using the Bulleit bottle, break up the ice as much as possible. Top the drink with crushed ice. Swizzle the drink with a knife like you're making a campfire. The ice will go down a bit. Top again. Garnish with a mint sprig. Drink with a straw.
Mixologist's note:"This simplified Julep is designed for the racing fan that likes a good drink but doesn't have access to a complete bar. Pick up some mint at any grocery store and look into your kitchen cabinets for the rest."
