Mod Monday- a Derby inspired cocktail

Maybe because it's Monday you need this vintage 60's inspired cocktail to get through your week... OR you can file it away for this weekend, as your perfect accompaniment to your over-sized Derby hat.
Either way, here is a super delicious (I am biased cause I'm southern), Mint Julep recipe. Cheers!

  • 1 scant ounce minted simple syrup
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • 2 ounces bourbon (such as Woodford Reserve)
  • Fresh mint sprig, for garnish
To highball glass or silver Julep cup, add minted simple syrup, then 1 cup crushed ice, bourbon, and splash of water. Add enough of remaining ice to almost fill glass. Stir well and garnish with mint sprig.
