In the finest tradition of the South, a tasty way to drink iced bourbon...
|½ teaspoon of powdered sugar per cup|
|3 ½ jiggers of good Kentucky bourbon per cup|
|A drop of angostura bitters per cup|
|1 cup crushed ice per cup|
Mint juleps are traditionally served inside silver cups or tall glasses. Run crushed mint leaves inside each container. Place ½ teaspoon of powdered sugar in the cup with ½ jigger of good Kentucky bourbon and add a drop of angostura bitters. Stir until the ice is dissolved. Add about 1/3 cup of crushed ice and stir until the sides of the cup frost up. Repeat the process several times until 2 - 3 jiggers of bourbon have been integrated into the cup. To p with a mint sprig tall enough to tickle the nose. Serve with nice linen napkins, fine friends, and a good story.
