Keto Mojito Recipe – Low Carb & Sugar Free
It’s been quite some time since we’ve posted a drink recipe on Tasteaholics, whether alcoholic or not. We get a lot of love on these rare posts, especially around the weekend when people are exploring their drinking options. Although these drinks are also completely acceptable during the week- we all have days when we need a drink at the end of the day!
When watching sugar intake (ketogenic diet or not!), many people often overlook the sugar and calories taken in while drinking. You may be very focused on the carbs in the foods you are eating and totally forget that a lot of beverages have carbs true. This is especially true when it comes to mixed drinks. There may be a splash of something in that drink you love so much that is adding lots of carbs to your glass. I personally know one friend who spent a good few weeks on keto, proud of how well he was doing, only to realize the tonic water he’d been enjoying was all sugar! Learn from him and inspect everything you drink, especially when it’s poured for you at a bar- who knows what concoctions that bartender is putting in your glass!
Knowing a few sugar-free drink recipes will make your life that much easier. If you are out at a bar or restaurant, you will be able to request a drink that you know is carb-free. When you are at home, mixing yourself up a tasty treat, you will be able to do so without worry. Our keto mojito is a recipe that you absolutely must master. It is low carb and keto-friendly which means it will put a smile on your face with that first sip!
While traditional mojitos are made by crushing sugar into the mint leaves, bringing out the mint flavor, and adding sweetness, we use granular erythritol instead. The erythritol will still add that great sweet taste to your glass while adding no carbs at all. Since it has the texture of regular sugar, it will still break up those mint leave and make your mojito full of minty taste. You won’t even notice that this drink has way fewer carbs than a traditional mojito- they taste exactly the same!
While this mojito recipe is perfect for summer (or any time of year, really!), you may want a different drink every now and then and, we like knowing what goes into our favorite drinks so that we can have any drink that we are craving, at any time, without worry. So we did our research and came up with a ton of low carb & sugar-free options. Take a look at our Ultimate Keto Alcohol Guide – see if your favorite drink makes the cut and which mixers and chasers to completely avoid this weekend.
In the meantime, pregame at home with this classic Keto Mojito. Cheers!
