Put Bourbon, Mint, and Sugar into the bottom of a cocktail shaker.
- 4 ounces bourbon whiskey
- 4 to 6 sprigs of mint
- 2 sugar cubes
Muddle to dissolve sugar and blend mint leaves.
Let stand for a bit to help release the mint flavor.
Add ice, and shake well to chill, then strain into a glass filled with shaved ice.
