As I sat in my car, sipping on my heavenly julep, I tried to put words on what my taste buds were experiencing. It’s sugary, it’s foamy, it’s frothy… Damn it’s good! Yet, Gibeau’s juleps are nutritious, contain a significant dose of vitamin C, 0g of fat and only 96 calories per 250 ml. How do they create this mysterious wonder?
Now being the curious person that I am, I obviously tried to get the 411 on the secret Orange Julep family recipe. I tried, but they wouldn’t crack. Unfortunately, it seems I’ll need to hire James Bond to uncover this mystery.
Interestingly enough, you’ll notice in THIS PICTURE
that the juice is served from a big container, which is piped down from the top of the orange! You have to love Gibeau for that – and for the 1-liter cartons of juice that you can bring back home to make some of these yummy ORANGE JULEP-BASED RECIPES
And don’t forget, the Orange Julep also means banana splits, cheeseburgers and poutine, so unless you’re only going for the OJ, leave the diet at home!
If you’re visiting from out of town, hop on the tube and get out at Namur Metro. You can’t miss the Big Orange, it just off the Decarie Expressway, near the corner of Jean-Talon Boulevard!
