Muddle mint leaves with cranberry simple syrup in a whiskey snifter. Add Bulliet Rye, fill glass with ice and stir. Bruise mint sprig lightly with your hands to release the fragrance, then place in glass for garnish. Using a sifter, sprinkle a small amount of powdered sugar over the top of the glass.
