Make a mint

The mint julep is the official drink of the Kentucky Derby, but do you know how to make one? William Crane, manager of the Bell House, shares his recipe:

Crushed ice
1 oz. mint-steeped simple syrup
3 oz. bourbon
3-4 twigs of mint
Splash of seltzer

Put mint in the bottom of a mixing glass. Pour in simple syrup, seltzer and one ounce bourbon. Use a muddler to crush the mint leaves and mix the bourbon and syrup. Add the rest of the bourbon. Let stand for about three minutes. Strain into a cocktail glass filled with shaved ice. Garnish with a mint sprig.
