21 Must-Try Keto Cocktails (That Taste Amazing!)

Ummm, cocktails on the keto diet? Heck yeah!! Just because you’re watching your carbs doesn’t mean you can’t have a good drink every once in a while. I’ve rounded up 21 must-try keto cocktails in this post. Enjoy! 🙂

Before we get into these awesome cocktails, I want to caution you to watch your consumption. When you’re on the keto diet, your alcohol tolerance will likely drop… so those five drinks you used to pound without a problem before will make you feel seriously yucky the next day. Have a cocktail, maybe two, but don’t go overboard. Your body will thank you!

The Most Keto Friendly Alcohol

You may or may not be surprised to learn that unflavored liquors are carb-free. For that reason, most of the 21 keto cocktails in this post contain them (except for a few that use dry wines instead — which aren’t carb-free, but are low-carb).

We’re talking stuff like:

  • Vodka
  • Whiskey
  • Brandy
  • Rum
  • Gin
  • Tequila
  • Scotch

Yep, all carb-free. Not calorie-free, but carb-free. (Can’t win ’em all, I guess.)

50 Keto Cocktails

Before I give you the list of 21 keto cocktails, I have to tell you something super exciting: an entire BOOK was just released containing over 50 gorgeous keto cocktails! It’s called Keto Happy Hour: 50+ Low-Carb Craft Cocktails to Quench Your Thirst (click that link to grab your copy). I’m buying a copy as soon as I hit “publish” on this post!
