Mint Julep Recipe

What is Mint Julep? The Mint Julep is a mixed alcoholic drink, or cocktail and traditionally made with four ingredients: mint, bourbon, sugar, and water. Then, how to make it?

Commonly used items are:
3 US fluid ounces (89 ml; 3.1 imp fl oz) Bourbon whiskey
4 to 6 sprigs mint leaves
granulated sugar, to taste

How to mix it:
*Put mint, sugar, and a small amount of crushed or shaved ice into the bottom of a julep cup or tall glass.
(Optional: Muddle the mint and sugar, then let stand for a bit to allow the broken leaves to release their flavor.)
*Add bourbon whiskey, top off with crushed or shaved ice, and stir well to mix and chill the mixture.

Or another recipe perhaps?
4 fresh mint sprigs
2 1/2 oz bourbon whiskey
1 tsp powdered sugar
2 tsp water

How to mix it:
* Muddle mint leaves, powdered sugar, and water in a collins glass.
* Fill the glass with shaved or crushed ice and add bourbon.
* Top with more ice and garnish with a mint sprig. Serve with a straw.
