Dr. McCoy's Georgia-Style Mint Julep Recipe

A real American drink for the celebration of America's founding. NOT to be confused with the vastly inferior Kentucky variant.

Crushed ice
1 tsp powdered sugar
2 teaspoon water
1 1/2 oz. brandy
1 1/2 oz. peach brandy
6 sprigs of fresh mint

Ideally served in a silver julep tumbler, although a glass is acceptable. Fill tumbler with crushed ice. Pour in brandy and peach brandy. Stir in dissolved sugar. Stir for 2-3 minutes vigorously. Garnish with mint sprigs, tucked into the ice, not crushed or smashed. Serves 1.
