- 6 to 8 sprigs fresh mint, plus additional for garnish
- 2 teaspoons sugar, or more to taste
- Crushed ice
- 2 1/2 ounces bourbon
In a tall glass, add the mint and sugar. With the handle of a spoon, crush and mash the leaves to extract flavor. Fill the glass with crushed ice and pour in the bourbon. Using an iced tea spoon, stir together to mix and chill. Garnish with another fresh mint sprig and serve.
