What drink can I drink on Keto?
A low carb vodka cocktail is one of my favorites because the vodka gets lost in the rest of the flavors. While some may call this a froo froo drink, the colors and flavors are something everyone can enjoy. Sure on certain occasions I love a keto margarita, but my go to alcohol is vodka. I just love the clean flavor of it. In the summer I want a refreshing cocktail that I can sip on like a vodka drink. I imagine that I am lying on the beach in the Caribbean. Imagine, watching the palm trees waving gently in the breeze. the gentle lapping of the waves on the beach. Ahhhh.

A Guide to Low Carb Cocktails
While low carb and 0 net carb cocktails are fine in moderation, please keep in mind that as long as you have alcohol in your system your body will not burn fat. Obviously drinking on a daily or ever several times a week basis is not a great idea if you want to lose weight on a low carb diet.
This alcoholic keto recipe has zero net carbs but the alcohol in the vodka does affect your bodies fat burning. And the low carb lifestyle is about burning fat for our fuel right? That’s what happens with the alcohol, it gets burnt instead. So enjoy, but just be aware of how often you have alcohol in your system.
What alcohol has no carbs and no ?
Clear spirits like rum, vodka, gin, and tequila have 0 net carbs when they are served straight up. Most flavored vodkas don’t have carbs but you should check the label or with the individual company to make sure. If you pair a clear spirit with a sugar free coke (sorry a coke = a soda where I live so if I say coke it isn’t Coke it’s a soft drink lol) or club soda you’ll keep it to 0 net carbs.
If you are a vodka tonic or a gin and tonic fan, you probably shouldn’t order it out. This is because most bars don’t carry diet tonic water. And guess what, the regular version is high in carbs. A 12 ounce serving of tonic water has 32 grams of carbs. Yes, regular tonic water has lots of sugar !
What alcohol can I on ?
My favorites when I was younger were either a Beer or a glass of wine. Unfortunately, beer has lots of carbs as does wine. Usually they aren’t as good of a choice as keto cocktails. That to me is a cocktail which has 0 net carbs. Most mixed drinks use carb heavy ingredients like simple syrup. That stuff is just sugar water, way too many carbs. Or they use fruit juices like cranberry juice that have added sugar.
- Beer has from 10 to 20 carbs per 12 ounce glass. The very lightest beers can go as low as 2.5 carbs but that’s unusual
- has about 2 grams of carbs in 6 ounces.
- White wine has about 1 gram of carbs in 6 ounces.
- Sparkling and dessert wines tend to be high in carbs due to the higher content.
One thing I like to do when out with friends is to order a glass of club soda, a glass of red wine, and an empty wine glass and make my own spritzers. I just combine half wine and half club soda. This lets me make my own low carb alcoholic drinks to sip on for the entire meal and conversation afterwards, but with just a few net carbs.
