1 glass Ice 3 oz Mint Syrup 4 oz Soda Water 1/2 tsp Rum Extract
MINT SYRUP JULEP MIX
4 cup water 1 bunch Mint, about 1.5 ounces 2 cup Splenda
To prepare mint extract: Take a bunch of mint. Wash and place in a saucepan. Cover with 4 cups of water and Splenda. Allow the leaves to soak for 15 minutes. Put on heat and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes. Drain the water through a sieve, removing all the mint. You will end up with between 3-4 cups of green mint sugar water. This is your mint julep solution.
To serve the julep, fill each glass 1/2 full with shaved ice, cubed if you do not have shaved. Pour in a shot and a half (3oz) of julep solution. Add a 1/2 tsp of rum (or real reum) extract. Top the glass with soda water. put mint on top. Insert a straw if you have one. Sick back on the porch swing, listen the creek babble, and all that junk. :-) ______________________________________________________________________ Per Serving: 6 Calories; 0.00 g Fat; 0.00 g Sat Fat; 0 mg Cholesterol; 0.19 mg Sodium; 1 g Carb; 0 g Fiber; 0.00 g Protein.
