Possibly my favorite cocktail. This one is made with buffalo trace bourbon which is sweet and spicy.
Mint leaves, 2 stems worth per drink
2 oz bourbon
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
ice, preferably crushed. (if you have one of those fridges that do it for you, you’re a lucky one.)
Place mint leaves in glass with bourbon and powdered sugar and muddle. I used a wooden spoon. The idea is to release the mint-ness from the mint. Let it sit for a minute or two and cover with ice. Traditionally served in a metal cup (to keep contents icy cold) and garnished with a mint sprig.
