It’s 5’o clock somewhere! 🍸
If you’re looking for a keto cocktail that is refreshing, light, and something everyone can enjoy, then look no further than our keto mojito! I love that I can make this delicious low carb drink all summer long, all while keeping it keto.
Our keto mojito is so good you’ll think you’re cheating, but you’re not – I promise!
Watch the video below to see how easy this keto cocktail is to make –
This super simple keto mojito cocktail can be made in under 5 minutes. It’s perfect for sipping on while you’re relaxing by the pool or even while you’re inside enjoying a Netflix binge (have you seen Ozark? OMG, so good!).
To keep this drink as simple as possible, I used the classic mojito recipe and substituted the sugar with Monk Fruit. Trust me, you’ll never even taste the difference, and neither will your non-keto friends. Shhh! I won’t tell! 😊
The secret is in the muddling!
Say what? Muddling is basically pressing down and smashing on an ingredient. For example, muddling the mint leaves will help extract the oils so they can be infused throughout your drink. Just a little muddling is all it takes and your mojito will be next level yum! 😋
Keto mojito recipe tips:
- Not a white rum fan? You can substitute this liquor with vodka if preferred.
- Sometimes the mint can put off a grassy taste if you muddle it too much, so make sure you muddle just enough to release the minty aroma and flavor.
- Prefer a fruitier drink? Try adding in some blueberries while muddling the mint leaves to make a blueberry keto mojito. Raspberries or strawberries would work too — yum!

Sorry, this isn’t on topic with this post. But I was just wondering what your thoughts are on taking a reds or greens powder supplements while on Keto? Would they put you out of ketosis?
Hi Steph! Great question. There are alot of variables to this question since I am unsure of the brand and/or the nutritional value of the product you are referring too. However, providing there are no added sugars and no non-keto ingredients its a possibility you would be able to fit it in your daily macros. Hope this helps❤
How do I make the Mojito using keto simple syrup that I have already made?
Don’t use the monk fruit sweetener and sub with one teaspoon simple syrup. If that’s not enough, you can increase it to 2 teaspoons.
