Low-Carb “White” Mint Julep

Low-Carb “White” Mint Julep

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.

Servings: 8

Time in the Kitchen: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle white
    wine
    of choice
  • 1 cup seltzer water
  • 3 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 single serving packet stevia (substitute
    powdered Swerve if
    prefer)
  • Extra large ice cubes

Instructions:

“Muddle” (crush and press) six mint leaves, powdered or
liquid stevia and small amount of seltzer water in a pitcher or
cocktail shaker.

Pour in rest of seltzer and wine. Stir well.

Serve over ice and garnish cups with additional mint.
