- 15–20 mint leaves (approx 4 sprigs of mint)
- 1 tsp powdered sugar
- 2 tsp water
- 2 oz bourbon whiskey
- Muddle together the mint, sugar and water with a mortar and pestle, or in a glass with the back of a spoon, until a mint paste is formed. Place it into the cup you’ll be serving it in.
- Fill the cup with ice (shaved or crushed is preferable).
- Pour the bourbon over the ice and garnish with a mint sprig.
- Best drunk with a straw.
