1. Vodka + seltzer + lemon

keto alcoholic drinks — ingredients for a classic vodka drink

It’s a classic vodka drink. Start with one shot of vodka, 4oz. of plain clear seltzer, and top it off with a squeeze of lemon for a fresh citrus flavor.

Serving: 5.5 fl oz. | Calories: 97 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 0.65g (0.2g fiber, 0.2g sugar) | Protein: 0g


2. Tequila + lime seltzer + sugar-free sweetener

keto alcoholic drinks — ingredients for a margarita

It’s a total fake out margarita! Stir together one shot of tequila and 4 oz. of lime-flavored seltzer with a quick shot of sugar-free sweetener — instant marg without the heavy dose of sugar! Feel free to salt the rim of your glass for an authentic feel.

It’s worth noting that adding sugar-free sweeteners will slightly increase calorie count based on your preferred sweetener’s nutritional information. Check out some of our favorites here!

Serving: 5.5 fl oz. | Calories: 104 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 0g (0g fiber, 0g sugar) | Protein: 0g


3. Tequila + grapefruit seltzer + sugar-free sweetener + lemon

This is for the Paloma fans. Another commonly sugar-filled drink can be reworked into a keto alcohol-based drink without all the carbs. Following the steps as the margarita — take one part tequila, 4 parts grapefruit seltzer, a dash of sweetener, and a squeeze of lemon.

Serving: 5.5 fl oz. | Calories: 104 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 0.65g (0.2g fiber, 0.2g sugar) | Protein: 0g


4. Gin + lime seltzer + mint + sugar-free sweetener

ingredients for a gin mojito

When you need a refreshing keto alcoholic drink to cool you down, look no further than this low-carb version of a mojito. Made with gin to help emphasize the lime essence and mint for the ultimate freshness, you may not even need to add the sweetener (though it’s totally fine if you do!). Muddle together the sweetener and a few mint leaves, then pour in one shot of gin and 4oz. or lime seltzer and stir.

Serving: 5.5 fl oz. | Calories: 110 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 0.5g (0.4g fiber, 0g sugar) | Protein: 0.2g


5. Prosecco + lemon seltzer + lemon + lime

keto alcoholic drinks - ingredients for a prosecco spritzer

There’s nothing like a summer spritzer! With equal parts prosecco and lemon or lime seltzer, you’ve got a bright, fizzy drink that won’t make your mind too fuzzy. Top with lemon and lime for both flare and flavor!

Serving: 8 fl oz. | Calories: 88 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 2.7g (0.3g fiber, 0.3g sugar) | Protein: 0g


6. White rum + diet cola + lime

ingredients for a keto rum and coke

It’s a low-carb Cuba Libre! Choose white rum over dark to avoid the sugars that come with the caramel coloring. Mix one shot of rum with 4oz. of diet cola for all the same great cola flavors without the carbs!

Alcohol Volume: 13-18%
Serving: 5.5 fl oz. | Calories: 97 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 0.4g (0.1g fiber, 0.1g sugar) | Protein: 0g

7. White rum + diet ginger beer + lemon

keto alcoholic drinks - ingredients for a dark and stormy

A sugar-free dark and stormy that will make you feel light and airy? Yes, please! While ginger beer is typically sugar-laden, you can find some diet versions made with sugar-free sweeteners. All it takes is one shot of rum, 4 oz. diet ginger beer, and a lime wedge to finish it off. You could also grab your copper mugs and swap out the rum for vodka to make a keto Moscow Mule!

Serving: 5.5 fl oz. | Calories: 97 | Total Fat: 0g | Total Carbs: 0.4g (0.1g fiber, 0.1g sugar) | Protein: 0g

A few things to keep in mind:

  1. On keto, your body burns alcohol for fuel before anything else, so drink in moderation to prevent weight loss stalls.
  2. Most keto dieters require much less alcohol to become intoxicated, so use caution.
  3. Alcohol is a depressant that also tends to lower inhibitions (like mindless snacking of higher-carb items).
  4. Eat a healthy keto meal before consuming alcohol to help offset its effects.
  5. Find out how to tell if you’re in ketosis with these common signs!

And remember, though these keto alcoholic drinks may be low carb, please be sure to enjoy them responsibly!

    I am depressed that none of the options are whiskey or bourbon. I’m really missing my Manhattans. 🙁

    • Dhdhh

      Whiskey is keto

    • Andi

      whiskey and crystal light lemonade -= whiskey sour
      personally, I prefer WalMart sugar free lemonade for taste.
      Tequila & sugar free limeade, or easier, the lemonade above and lotsa lime juice

  4. Christina

    I need to double check my white claws…I believe they have 2g of carbs and 2g of sugars ? Great post though!

  5. Donna Garcia

    Yes if you zoom in on the whiteclaw pic it says 2g of carbs on the box.

  7. Susannah M

    This is a fantastic list! I recently started using True Grapefruit and True Orange packets to get more of those flavors in my beverages. One packet of True Orange in a glass of champagne equals a Mimosa. I also use a pack of True grapefruit to make a Paloma, as well. 🙂

      Thanks for the tips! Glad you are loving this list! Enjoy!
