• Mint Julep Metal Cup
• Muddler

Add eight mint leaves to the bottom of your cup along with half an ounce simple syrup. Muddle the leaves lightly not to pierce, but to release flavor into the syrup. Crush your ice (I use a food processor) and pack it in your glass until it domes the top.

Using the side of the cup, add 4 ounces Markers Mark bourbon. Top the ice with one fourth ounce simple syrup, garnish the top with remaining mint.
