Ingredients

·      Leaves from 5-6 mint sprigs

·      2 packets stevia sweetener

·      3 ounces bourbon whiskey

·      2 cups crushed ice

·      Mint sprigs for garnish

 

Preparation

1.     Combine mint and stevia in a julep cup or tin cocktail shaker.

2.     Grind this mixture with a few turns of the wrist using a muddler or wooden spoon, until you smell a strong mint aroma.

3.     Add bourbon and half the ice. Churn with a stirrer until the cup gets frosty.

4.     Top with an additional pile of ice and a whole bunch of mint. Serve with a short straw so you’ll get a nose full of mint with every sip.
