The Sugar Free Carolina Julep has many similarities with the Prescription (Mint) Julep that we’ve reported on previously. However, while the mint, rye, and syrup are the same, this particular drink substitutes the cognac with an apple brandy.
The Sugar Free Prescription Julep is a wonderful classic drink (and also goes by the name of Mint Julep)! It’s origins are a little muddled, but its earliest incarnation dates back the mid 1700’s with it’s first official published recipe in 1803. However, this particular variation is adapted from our friends at Imbibe Magazine!
