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.
Time in the Kitchen: 10 minutes
“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.
