Serves 8 | Prep Time 15 mins | Cook Time 10 mins

Ingredients

* 2 cups water
* 2 cups white sugar
* 1/2 cup roughly chopped fresh mint leaves
* 32 fluid ounces Kentucky bourbon
* 8 sprigs fresh mint leaves for garnish


# Combine water, sugar and chopped mint leaves in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. Allow syrup to cool, approximately 1 hour. Pour syrup through a strainer to remove mint leaves


# Fill eight cups or frozen goblets with crushed ice and pour 4 ounces of bourbon and 1/4 cup mint syrup in each. (Proportions can be adjusted depending on each person's sweet tooth). Top each cup with a mint sprig and a straw. Trim straws to just barely protrude from the top of the cups. Serve juleps on a silver

If you are using silver goblets, place them in the freezer for at least half an hour before serving. Handle frozen goblets with a clean towel, holding them by their edges, so as not to mar the lovely frosted surface.
