Hi Everyone!
Kentucky Derby party, anyone? This afternoon is the 141st annual Kentucky Derby, but you don’t have to be at Churchill Downs to get in on the action!  When you look and feel your best, it’s always fun to dress up!  So pull on your sun hat and let’s make today’s Kentucky Derby into a special occasion!  And don’t forget to make some mint juleps!  Here’s my recipe for a lighter version of the traditional favorite…

Skinny Mint Julep Cocktail


Two handfuls of fresh mint leaves

2 teaspoons of light agave nectar

3 oz Bourbon whiskey

2 cups of crushed ice

1/4 cup water

Additional mint sprigs for garnish



Combine mint leaves and agave in a julep cup or tin cocktail shaker

Grind mint leaves up with muddler or wooden spoon

Add bourbon, sparkling water & crushed ice. Stir or shake.

Top with additional crushed ice and mint

For more delicious recipes, all new workouts and daily motivation from me, join my plan!  You DESERVE to look and FEEL your best, too.  Let’s do this together!

Love always from Your Personal Trainer,
