Hard Water Mint JulepFor this Hard Water Mint Julep, Erik Adkins saves the bourbon for last, drizzling it over the top of a bed of crushed ice.

2 oz. bourbon
⅓ oz. gomme syrup (or 2:1 rich simple syrup)
6 mint leaves
Tools: muddler
Glass: Julep
Garnish: 3 fresh mint sprigs

In the bottom of a Julep cup, gently press the mint leaves with the muddler to extract the oils. Fill the cup with crushed ice and insert a straw. Slap the mint leaves for garnish between your palms and place next to straw. Drizzle the bourbon on top, wait for the cup to frost, then serve.
