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