Many of us have memories of
mint juleps in summertime. While it’s certainly a cooling drink
perfect for the intense summer heat, winter’s quintessential
flavors also claim mint among them. With a bright taste and fresh
bite, mint juleps are often made with bourbon and syrup. That’s a
little heavy (and sweet), however, for those on a lower-carb
protocol like Primal or keto.
Here’s a lighter, less potent version of a julep with just as
much classic flavor. Mix up a garnished pitcher for your guests at
your next party.
