3 sprigs of mint (six to eight mature-sized leaves)
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 cup crushed ice
How to make it
First, you’ll want to grab a double-old fashioned glass. A double-old fashion glass is just a fancy way of saying a short glass.
Second, you’ll need to muddle two sprigs of mint with the brown sugar. Do this first!
This is where the entire cocktails taste stems from. If you’re new to making drinks, you’ll probably ask yourself, “What’s muddle mean?”
This just means to “mush” the items together. They sell muddles practically everywhere, but if you’re in a bind you could always use a wooden spoon. The trick is to find something that has some surface area to actually crush items.
After you muddle, you’ll want to add one ounce of Wild Turkey 101 and muddle for a few minutes.
Next, you add the crushed ice and the remaining bourbon.
Lastly, garnish with mint and you’re ready to sip.
Cheers to a long work week.
