I am only a little embarrassed to admit that I believe a good part of my success with keto is in part to still be able to have the occasional cocktail. I am Moscato Mom after all. And while I save indulging in my favorite sweet vino now only for special occasions, I do still love an adult beverage pretty regularly. My newest favorite – the Keto Mojito.
Now let me begin by saying there is a school of thought that NO alcohol can be considered keto… and I respect that. But I also feel like in order for any lifestyle to work, it has to be one that you can effectively do for the rest of your life… and for me, that is going to involve some cocktails. So for that reason, I work my occasional cocktail into my macros… and have still been successful. It is a win-win.
This Keto Mojito is the perfect summer cocktail because it is light and refreshing – and super low carb. In fact, each cocktail has only about 4 net carbs! You can also make a big pitcher to share! This is a perfect poolside beverage everyone will love.
