To make Sugar-free sweetener:


Stir 2 cups of powdered Xylitol Sweetener into 1 cup of water in a pan over low heat. Allow to cool, bottle and store your sugar-free sweetener in a refrigerator. The XyloSweet brand of Xylitol Sweetener performs well.

Review:

Bourbon with minty freshness served ice cold with the hint of sweetness amplifying flavours provided by sweetener rather than sugar.

This drink is better with the addition of dashes of aromatic bitters but this will add trace amounts of sugar.

History:

Adapted from the classic serve by yours truly (Simon Difford) in January 2019.
