    gailanng's Note:

    From the NY Times. Prep times includes 'steep' time. Let me assure you, if you don't like Bourbon, but you've never tasted Bourbon combined with citrus, you will reconsider.

    1. 1
      Scrub the fruit and use a zester or sharp knife to scrape slivers of rind from each. Set the fruit aside.
    2. 2
      Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a quick boil.
    3. 3
      Add zest, turn heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes. Turn off heat, and allow to cool.
    4. 4
      Put mint leaves in a quart jar and use the back of a wooden spoon to bruise them slightly, releasing the fragrance.
    5. 5
      Pour syrup, including the zest, over the leaves, and steep for 1 hour.
    6. 6
      Juice the lime, orange and lemon, and strain into a pitcher. Pour the mint syrup through the strainer as well, using the back of the spoon to press the captured mint leaves and zest to extract remaining juices.
    7. 7
      For each person, fill an 8-ounce glass or julep cup with ice. Pour 3 ounces of bourbon into each, then top off with the mint syrup.
    8. 8
