Mint Juleps (Step 3: Add Bourbon + Sugar)
The small amount of mint I planted at the beginning of the summer has blossomed into a full-on bush. I decided to make my own mint juleps to have on hand.
Step 1: Pick the mint.
Step 2: Fill a mason jar with mint.
Step 3: Add bourbon and 1/3 cup sugar.
Step 4: Refrigerate for 4-6 weeks, until the sugar is dissolved and the bourbon has been infused by the mint.
