Mint Julep

You can use a highball glass for this drink, but if you do, it won't
frost.  Traditionally, a silver julep cup is used.

Put 6 sprigs of mint in glass with 2 teaspoons of sugar.  Muddle gently 
with the back of a wooden spoon until mixture forms a paste.  Fill halfway 
with crushed ice, add 1 1/2 jiggers of bourbon.  Don't stir.  Fill rest of 
the way wtih crushed ice.  Stick it in the freezer until the glass frosts.  
Garnish with mint sprigs and a straw.
