Step 1Put the sugar syrup and mint leaves in a glass. Mash the mint leaves gently with a pestle until fragrant. Be careful not to mash the mint too much, as they will become too bitter and difficult to drink. Since mint stems tend to be edgy, remove the stems and add only the leaves for a more elegant flavor.
Step 2Fill a glass with crushed ice, pour bourbon whiskey into a glass and stir.
Step 3Pour the soda into the glass and stir gently.
Step 4Insert two straws and garnish with mint. Garnish the mint leaves on top by tapping them once lightly with the palm of your hand to make the aroma rise.
