Low Carb Whiskey Sour Slush (Phase2, OWL)

Low Carb Whiskey Sour

One of the best low carb drinks I can think of is a Whiskey Sour, at least the way I make it.

Alcohol doesn’t really have carbs?? it’s just the stuff you put in it. It can cause a serious stall, though. While the alcohol is in your system you won’t burn fat. That isn’t a big problem unless you start having a drink ever single day and your metabolism is really slow.

Not that I have ever done that.

Whiskey Sour Slush, Low Carb

I don’t drink a lot but I do like to have a cocktail once in awhile or a glass of wine with dinner. It’s just that I am a wimp when it comes to booze and I am not an on the rocks girl. I prefer something that tastes like Kool-Aid with a little zap, if you know what I mean. Of course that’s kicked me in the butt more than once. When drinks taste like Kool-Aid I tend to guzzle them.

Don’t try that at home, kids.

A few weeks ago I started working with a company on Restless Chipotle, my other blog. They make a lot of the alcohol that we buy so I felt good about endorsing them. They sent out a couple of bottles and to my great joy and delight one of them was George Dickel Sour Mash Whiskey.

I love that stuff. Well, in a celebratory way not in a bum with a brown paper bag?sort of way. I was just off of a round of induction and I decided to create a low carb version of one of my favorites to celebrate with.

The Lowcarb-ology Extra Special Whiskey Sour Slush.

Oh my gosh, it was so good that I had to remind myself not to guzzle.
I used the George Dickel Sour Mash Whiskey that the company sent to me but they didn’t send it for review, especially not on this blog. This is a product that I use and so I feel comfortable in endorsing it. Use whatever you prefer. No money changed hands.

  1. These cocktails look amazing! I can?t wait to try them……
    Can you tell me what brand of water enhancers you use?… I?m not sure if I know what there are… can u buy them at the grocery store?
    Thanks ????????

    1. I use different ones – you can get them at the grocery store or on Amazon through the links in the post (I usually leave links). I use Mio mostly.

  2. Would this work for a margarita except use an orange water enhancer and tequila? Would be awesome if so!

    1. Yes – it should.. and there are several margarita recipes here in Lowcarb-ology. Just go to the recipe index at the top to find them.
