Derby Day MInt Julep ♥

I love Mint Juleps! ...and I love Derby Day can't wait for tomorrows race, here's a supercute idea served in a mason jar...I am beginning to love these mason jars! enjoy! ♥

  ♥   2 to 3 ounces bourbon, to taste
  ♥   1 teaspoon sugar, to taste, dissolved in 1 teaspoon water (or use 2 tsp. simple syrup)
  ♥   8 to 10 leaves fresh mint
  ♥   Mint sprigs, for garnish
  ♥   Crushed ice
Place the sugar and water at the bottom of a julep cup or tall glass and stir until sugar is dissolved (or speed the process by using simple syrup). Add the mint leaves and gently bruise with a wooden muddler or a wooden spoon. Take care not to overwork the mint, but swab the sides of the glass with the mint's aromatic oils. Half-fill the  mason jar glass with crushed ice and add the bourbon, stirring to combine. Fill the  mason jar glass with crushed ice and stir until the outside of the glass frosts. Add more crushed ice if needed to fill, and generously adorn the drink with sprigs of fresh mint. Serve with a short straw, so the fragrance of the mint bouquet will greet the drinker with each sip.enjoy!  ♥
