2 cups sugar
2 cups water
Sprigs of fresh mint
Make a simple syrup by boiling sugar and water together for five minutes.
Cool and place in a covered
container with six or eight sprigs of fresh mint, then refrigerate overnight.
Make one julep
at a time by filling a julep cup with crushed ice, adding one tablespoon mint syrup and two ounces (or four,
if you're drinking with Doodles)of Kentucky Bourbon (Wild Turkey is a 5 Cent Coffee Favorite).
Stir rapidly with a spoon to frost the outside of the cup. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
