Ocean Breeze Drink: Low Carb Cocktail

Long, lazy weekends are made for relaxing with a favorite low carb cocktail like this refreshing Ocean Breeze that’s a fruity, delicious summer drink with just enough vodka to remind you it’s for adults only. A beautiful blue keto cocktail with 0 carbs? How can you resist? Yes, this alcoholic drink recipe is for adults over 21. Best of all? It has all those wonderful flavors without the sugar.

For this low carb recipe you’ll need: vodka, sugar free blue raspberry syrup, sugar free coconut syrup, sugar free lemon lime soda, a lime, and crushed ice cubes. For fun, you can add a lime wedge to make it fancy for your guests.

A low carb vodka cocktail is one of my favorites because the vodka gets lost in the rest of the flavors. I know, I know…girlie drinks. In the summer I want something that I can sip on and imagine that I am lying on the beach in the Caribbean. Imagine, watching the palm fronds waving gently in the breeze. Ahhhh.

So what if I’m sitting on the back deck contemplating 2 acres of brush and weeds?

This bright blue, Ocean Breeze drink definitely tastes like something you’d find in the Caribbean. The coconut and lime flavors combine to smooth out the vodka while the sugar free lemon lime soda gives it a nice sparkle. Best of all, this keto drink has 0 net carbs and that makes it just right for sipping all summer long.

A Guide to Low Carb Cocktails

While low carb and 0 net carbs carb cocktails are fine in moderation 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.

What alcohol has no carbs and no sugar?

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 whatever) or club soda you’ll keep it to 0 net carbs.

If you are a vodka & tonic or a gin & 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 has 32 grams of carbs (sugar !)

What alcohol can I drink on low carb?

My favorites when I was younger were either a Beer or a glass of wine. Unfortunately, beer has carbs as does wine. Usually they aren’t as good of a choice as a keto friendly cocktail – which to me is 0 net carbs.

  • 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
  • Red wine 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 sugar 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 – half wine and half club soda. This lets me make my own keto cocktail to sip on for the entire meal and conversation afterwards, but with just a few net carbs.
