Join PBS NewsHour’s Meredith Garretson as she learns how to make the perfect mint julep for this weekend’s Kentucky Derby.

Barrel’s Mint Julep

Ingredients
2 oz bourbon
1/2 ounce simple syrup
2 cups crushed ice
Mint bunch

Tools
Mint julep tin (or 12 ounce cocktail glass)
Cocktail jigger
Muddler

Directions:
Take 3-4 mint leaves and place them in cocktail glass. Add the simple syrup and muddle. Remove and discard the mint.

Add the bourbon, one cup of ice, and stir. Top with remaining ice so that it forms a dome-like top on the glass. Finish with a garnish of mint and drink with a straw.
