Completely Keto Mint Julep

In the heart of bourbon country, nestled among the rolling hills of Kentucky, there lived a spirited keto enthusiast named Owen. Owen had a deep appreciation for the rich traditions of his homeland, especially when it came to its signature drink, the mint julep. With the annual Derby Day approaching, a festive occasion celebrated with gusto in his community, Owen was determined to create a keto-friendly version of this beloved cocktail.

Drawing inspiration from the classic recipe, Owen decided to innovate, replacing the traditional sugar syrup with Swerve for sweetness without the carbs. He chose Kentucky Bourbon for its authenticity and depth of flavor, and to add a unique twist, he infused the drink with Peach Hint Water Sparkling, introducing a refreshing and fruity note that complemented the mint beautifully.

As Derby Day dawned, Owen’s Completely Keto Mint Julep became the highlight of the celebration, marrying the cherished traditions of Kentucky with the modern, health-conscious lifestyle he championed. It was a toast to heritage, innovation, and the joy of sharing good times with good friends, keto style.
