Mint Julep Margarita
2 limes, each cut into 16 pieces
2 teaspoons superfine sugar
10 fresh mint leaves
2 ounces bourbon
1 ounce orange liqueur
1/4 cup seltzer
Place the limes in a cocktail shaker. Sprinkle with the sugar and add the mint leaves. Muddle well, making sure the juice is really extracted from the limes and the sugar dissolves. Add the bourbon and orange liqueur. Add a couple of ice cubes, cover and shake well. Strain. Can be served over ice or straight. Top with seltzer.[via]
