Sounds like your kind of drink ?
Last week I was mixing some cocktail recipes for the neighbors and as I was pouring out cocktail after cocktail that I couldn’t have because of the carbs, I wondered if there was a way to make Sex in the Driveway drink into a low carb cocktail.
Of course there was.
It took awhile to get it right but I was more than happy to test them for you. It’s a tough sacrifice that I’m gladly willing to do for you my dear reader. Vodka and peach vodka are stirred together with sugar free blueberry lemonade and white cherry water enhancers. If you want it to be a good blue color for your highball glass you’re going to need some blue gel food color too. When the Diet Sprite is added you have a fizzy fruity cocktail that is the color of the summer sky.
While alcohol usually doesn’t have any carbs it does contain calories and it does tend to stop the fat burning process because you body prefers to burn the easier stuff — alcohol. Because of that cocktails should really be a treat and not something you imbibe on a regular basis. I like to save my consumption for Saturdays when I try to take time off and just relax. ?So, yes this is low carb but be aware that it could stall you if you are trying to lose weight.
The regular Sex in the Driveway drink uses blue curacao. While it gives a great color and flavor, one ounce has 12 grams of carbs. That won’t do for a low carb cocktail recipe. The regular drink recipe also calls for regular fizzy Sprite. One ounce has 3.1 carbs or almost a whole sugar packet in that little amount. Of course you can use any sugar free lemon lime soda. The regular Sex in the Driveway drink recipe also uses peach schnapps which has 7.2 carbs in one ounce. These 3 ingredients would have 22.1 carbs in just 3 ounces. Eeek ! That’s where the sugar free water enhancers are the perfect ingredient. All the flavor without the sugar. Thankfully this keto cocktail doesn’t have fruit juice like cranberry juice, orange juice, or pineapple juice. Those are real killers when in ketosis. As is a wonderful little maraschino cherry. You can use those pretty little sugar balls, just don’t eat them.
Sex in the Driveway is a colorful twist on the Sex on the Beach cocktail. I promise you I don’t know where they come up with these names but they sure are funny. I’m sure that if I went into a bar and asked for a Sex in the Driveway drink I’d be giggling like a 12 year old. Probably do the same after my 2nd one lol.
Here’s the low carb Sex in the Driveway drink. This is a relatively strong drink so please drink responsibly and stay safe.

I love this drink it is my new summer favorite! However, if you add about 2 oz of coconut milk to this, it will rock your world!
I made this yesterday at my sister’s house. It was way too strong. I had my doubts when I saw that it has 5 ounces of alcohol in it and it says 1 serving… that’s basically 5 shots in one drink? Is that right? We had to split one and dump a ton more diet sprite in it… LOL
It’s how I like it. 🙂
You’re my kind of girl…I like ’em a bit strong, too!
