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!

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 by the 5th round we thought they were excellent. It turned out to be an epic Derby Day. Maybe some citrus soda or peach brandy would have mellowed the flavor a bit. But then it wouldn't be a traditional julep.
