  • 2
    In a shallow baking pan, combine remaining water, bourbon and chopped mint. Add mint-sugar mixture and stir to combine. Place in freezer, uncovered, for at least 8 hours or overnight.

    The next day, lightly scrape the icy mixture with fork tines. Scoop into serving glasses; garnish with more mint, if desired.
