Directions

  • 1 To make the mint simple syrup, add the water and the sugar to a small saucepan and boil for 1 to 2 minutes stirring until sugar is dissolved. Muddle mint slightly to release natural oils, stir it into the syrup mixture. Set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.
  • 2 Fill an 8-oz glass with crushed ice. Pour in the whisky and give it a good stir. Then top with the mint syrup and a few sprigs of fresh mint.
  • 3 Enjoy slowly (and responsibly).

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

The mint syrup can be made in advanced and stored in the refrigerator for several days.

There is enough syrup to make several drinks.

Be sure to just make one drink at a time so the crushed ice doesn’t melt too quickly.

Traditionally this drink is served in a silver cup but if you can’t fine one a glass will work fine.
