    KissKiss's Note:

    Southern Living's recipe for THE drink of the South. So refreshing on a hot day... and the booze helps you forget how hot it is! ;-) The recipe author suggests using the Mint Simple Syrup in the OTHER drink of the South - sweetened iced tea.

    Mint Simple Syrup

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To make the Mint Simple Syrup, bring the sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Boil, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves.
    2. 2
      Remove from heat, add mint, and let cool completely.
    3. 3
      Pour syrup into a glass jar, then cover and chill 24 hours. Remove the mint and discard.
    4. 4
      To make the drink, place mint leaves and Mint Simple Syrup in a chilled julep cup. Gently press the leaves against the cup with the back of a spoon to release flavors.
    5. 5
      Pack the cup tightly with crushed ice and pour the bourbon over ice. Insert a 4-inch cocktail straw, place mint sprig directly next to straw, and sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
    6. 6
      Serve immediately.
