Let’s be honest, most of us love to go out and have a good time. This usually means that you like to have a few drinks as well. However, you’re on the ketogenic diet and most of the drinks you enjoy are almost definitely not keto friendly. It’s time to fund some keto alcohol drinks that you can enjoy.
Is drinking on the ketogenic diet even allowed? The short answer is yes.
You just need to be aware of what you’re drinking because a lot of alcoholic drinks can easily kick you out of ketosis.
These are a few simple guidelines that you need to follow when it comes to drinking and the ketogenic diet. Most of it comes down to the mixers that you end up using.

And old fashioned is a classic drink that you probably don’t hear too many people ask for it at a bar anymore.
If you’re a fan of bourbon then you’re going to enjoy this drink, especially if you’ve never had a traditional old fashioned before.

Low Carb Moscow Mule
Have you ever gone to a bar and seen a drink served in a copper type mug. Well, that drink was more than likely a Moscow Mule
The people I know that love Moscow Mules always tell me that it’s not the same unless you have a copper mug. If it’s not served in a copper mug, send it back and get something else.
This particular recipe adds a hint of mint that’s going to add a slightly different dynamic to the overall taste of the drink.

Low Carb Daiquiri
A daiquiri is an amazing drink, especially when the weather is starting to get really hot.
Daiquiris are meant to be enjoyed in a peaceful and relaxing environment. They may not be the best choice for a night out on the town but they can still help make things get a little crazy.
This version of daiquiri is great because a typical one is going to have a lot of sugars in it and definitely kick you out of ketosis. The goal is to stay in ketosis while being able to have a good time with your drinking.

Caribbean Rum Punch
Rum is my favorite type of alcohol. I couldn’t tell you exactly why but it’s always a go to no matter what the occasion might be.

Bloody Mary’s are a typical drink the day after a night out when you’re hungover. They are also a decent drink when you’re at your Sunday brunch with your friends.
Although this recipe might have more ingredients than the others, it’s still a simple drink to make.
The problem with this drink is going to be from the tomato juice. This is where all the hidden sugar is going to be so you need to make sure that you have a tomato juice that is either sugar free or has very little added sugar to it.
