This is one of Steven’s favorite drinks to make when we have people over. It’s simple, refreshing, full of flavor and makes us feel a tad fancier than our usual beer menu for a party.
3 fluid ounces good bourbon
2-3 mint leaves
1 1/2 fluid ounces mint simple syrup
Add liquids into a glass. Top off with mint leaves and ice.
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
15-20 mint leaves
Boil sugar and water in a small saucepan on medium heat until dissolved. Remove from heat. Add mint and let cool. Strain mint leaves and transfer into a bottle. We use a squirt bottle that stays in the fridge.
