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.
