"MINT JULEP" (Southern States of America)

The mixing and ingredients of this famous drink vary amongst bartenders, but I have always found my following recipe very popular.

Put into a long tumbler about 9 sprigs of tender freshly gathered mint. Ad d :

11/2 good teaspoonfuls of Sugar 1/3 measure Bourbon Wh i s ky 1 teaspoonful Peach Brandy

Take the disc end of the bar spoon and pound these ingredients together, almost into a paste. To derive the full benefit of the mint flavour allow to stand for 10 minutes before proceeding. Next fill the glass with crushed powdered ice and add

11/2measures Bourbon or Canadian Club Wh i sky Dash of Angostura Bitters

Stir gently until the glass is frosted. Decorate the drink with 3 sprigs of mint, also a slice of pineapple or orange. Finally, pour lightly on the drink a tablespoonful of Brandy. Serve with two drinking straws.
