Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 6 cups ice
  • 3 cups bourbon
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves, plus 12 to 15 sprigs for garnish
  • 1 cup Rhubarb Simple Syrup, recipe follows
  • 2 cups ginger beer
  • Rhubarb Simple Syrup:
  • 2 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 1 cup sugar
Directions
  • Fill a pitcher with the ice, then add the bourbon, lemon juice, mint and Rhubarb Simple Syrup, and stir to combine. Top with the ginger beer, and serve in glasses with a mint sprig garnish.

Rhubarb Simple Syrup:
  • Place the rhubarb, sugar and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until the sugar dissolves and the rhubarb softens, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. Yield: 2 1/2 cups.

Cook's Notes: Substitute the bourbon and ginger beer with ginger ale for a non-alcoholic version of this drink.

When blending hot liquids, first let cool for 5 minutes or so, then transfer to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open; this will prevent the vacuum effect that creates heat explosions. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters and pulse until smooth.
