Most Kentuckians insist on serving this drink in sterling silver julep cups, and always with well-crushed ice.
Few sprigs fresh mint
2 oz. Simple Syrup
6 oz. bourbon
1. Rub rims of four prechilled julep glasses with mint, then pack with crushed ice so that it mounds over top of cups.
2. Pour 1 oz. sugar syrup and 3 oz. bourbon over ice into each cup, then garnish generously with mint sprigs.
