Celebrate With These Holiday Low-Carb Cocktails Your Keto Diet Will Love

Holiday Low-Carb CocktailsWhen you’re on a reduced carbohydrate diet, low-carb cocktails can be your key to enjoying a great drink at holiday parties. Keto dieting is more popular than ever, but popular cocktails are often too high in carbohydrates to be permitted. Breaking with your macronutrient strategy’s balance can cause unwanted weight to return. Still, many of us will want to have something great to drink while we celebrate the holidays.

The following low-carb cocktails are only a few of the options you can choose to keep your holidays keto-friendly or to let you stay on top of the macronutrient ratios you plan to follow.

Check Out These Festive Low-Carb Cocktails

  • Keto Moscow Mule – Though the original drink may not be a great one among low-carb cocktails, with a few tweaks you’ll be on your way. Simply use low-carbohydrate ginger beer and add a squeeze of fresh grapefruit juice. The result is a refreshing, festive and tasty drink that is perfect for this time of the year.
  • Crantastic cocktail – This low carb cocktail adds unsweetened cranberry juice, lemon juice and some fresh cranberries to a sparkling white wine. Instead of using simple syrup to sweeten things in the traditional way, sub in your favorite low-calorie sweetener, instead.
  • Dairy-free eggnog – If you’re following the keto diet, then the odds are that you’re cutting back on dairy, if you haven’t eliminated it altogether. This means that eggnog is out of the question for you if you plan to stay on track. Fortunately, there are dairy-free alternatives that are low-carb, too. All you need to do is combine coconut milk with nutmeg as well as your favorite low-carb sweetener.
  • Holiday punch – No party is complete at this time of year without a bowl of punch. Make yours the perfect choice for all the keto dieters in attendance by turning it into one of your low-carb cocktails. Fortunately, this is very easy to make by choosing pink champagne (sparkling wine) and vodka with diet Cherry 7-Up. It tastes great and won’t force you to have to abandon all thoughts of your low-carbohydrate diet.
    • Iced coffee, mint mojito style – Sure, a mojito is likely something you usually associate with summertime or vacationing somewhere warm. That said, if you combine a mint mojito with iced coffee, you’ll have a low-carb cocktail on your hands. For a truly wintery touch, add just a touch of cognac, brandy or rum to the mix.
