Here's a refreshing cocktail for your almost-but-not-quite-yet-Friday afternoon.

Using a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon, mash 7 fresh mint leaves, 1 lemon half, quartered lengthwise, and 1 Tbsp. Simple Syrup in a 16-oz. mixing glass or a cocktail shaker 4โ€“5 times just to release juices and oils. Add 1/4 cup bourbon. Transfer to an Old Fashioned glass. Fill halfway with crushed ice, stir, then mound more crushed ice on top. Garnish with mint sprigs.
