"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Cover sugar mixture, and steep 30 minutes. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a pitcher, discarding mint leaves. Cool. Stir in bourbon. Serve over crushed ice.
