A sparkling ginger twist on the classic mint julep
- 6 ounces ginger beer
- 2 ounces bourbon**
- about 8 mint leaves
- Muddle the ginger beer, 3 mint sprigs and bourbon together in a glass until the mint has released its flavor.
- Fill the glass with crushed ice, then garnish with remaining mint sprig.
- (Optional: If you do not like the remaining muddled mint leaves, you can strain the julep before addint the ice and garnish mint sprig.)
- **To make a non-alcoholic version, simply omit the bourbon.
