Low-Calorie Sazerac Cocktail Recipe

This Kentucky Derby, Skip Mint Juleps For a Low-Cal Sazerac

The 138th Kentucky Derby is this weekend, so grab your wide-brimmed hats and kick back with a classic mint julep cocktail — just go easy on all that sweet stuff. Traditionally made with simple syrup, mint juleps are nothing if not a sugar high waiting to happen. You could skip the drink altogether in favor of another traditional whiskey cocktail from the South: the sazerac. With only a touch of sugar, a sazerac falls right around the 150-calorie mark. Easy drinking for a day at the races!
