Mississippi Mint Lemonade

I was so honored when the adorable 5 O'Clock Fashionistas asked me to guest for them on the topic of cocktails! What a fun topic! I wanted to come up with something that felt well represented my home state of Mississippi so I got to thinking... Bourbon and mint are pretty quintessentially Southern if you ask me! And I've been on a real honey and lemon kick lately, so I decided to come up with something that incorporated all of those!
After a little trial and error, I landed on what I think is a pretty decent recipe!
It's a little sweet, a little sour, and definitely has a little edge with the bourbon. Perfect for a hot day, wether you're in the capital of Southern heat and humidity (read: Mississippi) or elsewhere!
10 to 12 mint leaves
juice from 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons honey
2 oz. bourbon
Put mint and lemon juice in a shaker and muddle the mint leaves in the lemon juice.
Add the honey, bourbon, and ice and shake.
Strain into a coupe glass, garnish with an extra mint sprig, and enjoy!
