To make the simple syrup, combine ½ cup sugar and water in a small saucepan and stir over medium heat until the sugar has completely dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Cut the lemons in half and sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of sugar over the cut edges.
Holding the torch 6 inches above the lemon halves, sweep the flame over the lemons in a steady motion until the sugar has caramelized.
Juice the lemons into a medium pitcher (placing a mesh strainer over the pitcher will help catch the seeds).
Add the simple syrup and bourbon and stir to combine. Fill the pitcher with ice to chill, then split among 4 glasses and enjoy!
