Mint Juleps

Start with ice cold julep cups or glasses....

2 cups sugar
2 cups water
Sprigs of fresh mint
Crushed ice
Makers Mark or a good KY Bourbon
Silver Julep Cups (glasses work too)

Make a simple syrup by boiling sugar and water together for five minutes. Cool and place in a covered container with six or eight sprigs of fresh mint, then refrigerate overnight. Make one julep at a time by filling a julep cup with crushed ice, adding one tablespoon mint syrup and two ounces of Early Times Kentucky Whisky. Stir rapidly with a spoon to frost the outside of the cup. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.

That's the Louisville Downs Derby recipe, but I think they use Early Times instead of Makers Mark. It's pretty powerful, but julep cups are relatively small. Here's mine.
