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 for Keto Cocktails

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.)
