mint Julep : A postcard from the US South in Glass
mint Julep is a cocktail with a deeply rooted tradition, undoubtedly associated with the south of the United States, especially with the Kentucky Derby. Its introduction as the official drink of this prestigious horse race in 1938 made it world famous. Its history, however, goes even further back to the 18th century, when 'julep' meant any drink used to deliver medicine. When the colonists brought whiskey to America, they combined it with mint, sugar and water to create a recipe that has survived to this day.

And short story about LEET DIET
As a choreographer and aerial gymnast, I had always been interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Diets had been my hobby, but I never truly enjoyed them until I discovered the Keto diet. After reading numerous books about how our bodies work and the benefits of a high-fat, low-carb diet, I decided to give it a try. I never looked back. The Keto lifestyle quickly became my passion, and I began experimenting with new recipes and meal plans. That's when I decided to share my knowledge with the world and created Leet Diet, a website filled with delicious Keto-friendly recipes and helpful tips for anyone looking to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
