  • 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.
