5-7 fresh mint leaves
6 – 8 ounces of Bourbon (your preference)
Crushed ice
Lime slices for garnish


Muddle some fresh mint in the bottom of your glass. Add 4 oz of bourbon (more or less depending on your mood).

Add a ton of crushed ice.

Stir…then add more ice.

Garnish with some fresh mint that you have clapped between your hands (this releases some of the mint oils and adds more flavor).

For additional garnish, slice lime and place on the rim of glass.

Sip slowly, put on a fancy hat, and watch Secretariat on Disney Plus for the perfect National Mint Julep Day celebration.
