Make simple syrup. Dissolve a cup of sugar into four cups of boiling water. Remove from heat and gently lay in twelve sprigs of mint allowing the mint to steep for an hour. Discard the mint with dignity and reverence for the mint has performrd its serviice nobly. Pour the mint infused simple syrup into a small crystal pitcher. Frost a glass or a silver julep cup. Use a napkin to retrieve the glass or the julep cup from the freezer so that you do not melt the frost.
Pack the glass or the julep cup with crushed ice. Pour in two jiggers of Kentucky Bourbon. Fill the glass or julep cup with simple syrup. Place an attractive sprig of mint inside the rim of the glass or julep cup. Place a red cocktail straw inside the rim opposite the mint. Dust the top of the glass or julep cup with powdered sugar.
