Directions:

2. Add the crushed ice and shake to mix before adding the bourbon
3. Decorate with the mint sprig

Sugar syrup

Put 4 tbl water and 4 tbl sugar into a small saucepan and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil, then continue to boil, without stirring, for approximately 1 minute (watch that it doesn't boil over). I add a couple of mint sprigs to the syrup in the last 3 seconds of boiling time for an added mint flavor.

The syrup should be cooled and can be refrigerated up to two weeks.
