I am wondering if 1 teaspoon was supposed to be 1 tablespoon. Basically it is straight bourbon otherwise. We kept working on the formula and decided we liked more mint and more syrup. Of course...

This is a nice stiff drink. I drank a few sips, as is, then decided to add a splash of Diet 7Up for bubbles. CHEERS, Alrecipes!
