- 3 ounces bourbon
- 6 sprigs mint
- 2 to 4 tablespoons simple syrup
- Soda water
- Mint for garnish
- Mix bourbon, mint and simple syrup in a pint glass. Add 3 pieces of ice and muddle for about a minute. Let stand for several minutes. Strain into glass filled with shaved ice. Top with soda water and a mint sprig. For a mintier version, remove the three pieces of ice, leave the mint, and pour all ingredients into the glass followed by fresh ice.
