I agree with the recipes submitted above. Don't be stingy on the mint. I also muddle the mint with the bourbon and the bsp of rich syrup and let it sit for 5min (muddle a couple of times during those 5min).
What bourbons do you prefer except of OGD? I really like BT in this cocktail, would pick it over MM all day long. Haven't tried it with OGD yet.
I tend to like a softer wheater in mine but not wedded to MM by any means. In fact I prefer W12, OWA or the always dependable SB blend of course. Haven't tried it yet but Larceny might work well also.
That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
