In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and water over medium-low heat. Stir until the sugar completely dissolves, then turn off the heat and add the mint. Lightly muddle using a muddler or wooden spoon. Let the mixture cool to room temperature, about 45 minutes. Once cooled, strain through a fine mesh strainer. Stir in bourbon and divide the mixture among popsicle molds. If inserting wooden sticks into the popsicles, let the mixture freeze for about 45 minutes to an hour beforehand. Freeze for another hour or until fully frozen. This recipe is courtesy of Honesty Yumm.
