Mint Julep

A Taste of Louisiana with Chef John Folse

Makes one drink

The Ingredients:
19-oz. old fashioned glass
6 mint leaves
2 Tbsps. powdered sugar
1 oz. Bourbon
1 oz. Southern Comfort
1 oz. simple syrup
1 c. crushed ice
1 sprig fresh mint

The Method:
Place mint leaves in the bottom of old fashioned glass along with the powdered sugar. Add bourbon, Southern Comfort, syrup and crushed ice. Using an iced tea spoon, blend all ingredients well into the mint-sugar mixture. Garnish with fresh mint sprig and serve with a straw. This cocktail should be stirred long enough for frost to form on the outside of the glass. It’s said that the early planters would only drink mint juleps from silver tumblers.
