2 Mint Julep

Take a tall bar glass and add a tablespoon of sugar syrup, a dozen mint leaves, and 3 dashes of Angostura bitters. Bruise the mint with the muddler (gently) and blend the whole mix by stirring (do not use the blender). Also, make sure not to crush the mint leaves. Pour 2 ounces of Bourbon.

Remove the Julep glasses from the refrigerator and fill with crushed ice. Pour the Julep and stir for a few minutes. Add more ice and then fill with Bourbon till it reaches 1/4th of an inch from the top. You have the drink ready.
