In small saucepan boil 1/3 c superfine sugar in 1/3 c water for 5 minutes until dissolved. Transfer to bowl and add 1/3 c mint leaves. Muddle the mixture. Fill large frosted glass with crushed ice and strain in mixture. Add 2 oz bourbon and serve. Makes two servings.
It takes a little work, but it's a sweet, refreshing drink. Goes very well with Imperial Chicken, you know, with the crunchy LACHOY noodles?
