The mixing and ingredients of this famous drink vary amongst bar-tenders, but I have always found my following recipe very popular. Put into a long tumbler about 9 sprigs of tender freshly-gathered mint. Add: 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: 1^ measures Bourbon or Rye Whisky 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. 1^2 good teaspoonfuls of Sugar ^ measure Bourbon Whisky 1 teaspoonful Peach Brandy
