Cocktail on a keto diet? Some say not possible, we say, why not!
You may be watching your carbs and sugar on a keto diet but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a good drink (when made right) occasionally. Unflavoured liquors like vodka, rum, Scotch and gin are carb and sugar-free. Which means, you can mix them up with keto-friendly ingredients and have a cocktail while sticking to your diet. Because why should the non-dieters have all the fun, right!
So, gather up your keto buddies and sip on these low-carb cocktails without cheating on your diet.
