Preparation Time5 min

In julep cups, place 4 to 5 mint leaves. Pour over 1 ounce of bourbon. If you'd prefer a sweeter drink, add 1/2 teaspoon sugar at this time.
Muddle the mint and bourbon in the bottom of the cup to release the flavors.
Fill cup with ice and top with Prosecco, about 3-4 ounces. Enjoy!
