No Sugar Here!

Keto Friendly RecipeWe’re always looking for interesting low carb cocktails to order or make at home for friends! Our standard was a Long Island Iced Tea without all the sweeteners, but as that only left 4 different kinds of alcohol in debilitating quantities, we needed something lighter. We did some searches for cocktails with lime and club soda and came across a Lime Rickey (funnily enough, it’s the combo of our names, Rami & Vicky!)

A Lime Rickey is traditionally made with gin or bourbon and have very little sugar added to them. Sounds like our kind of cocktail! Lime is added for the hint of sweetness it gives with adding too many carbs. A medium lime has 5g of carbs, and if you use only the juice, add 4g of carbs.

To make this more palatable we added some sugar-free raspberry syrup, from Torani, which gave us some awesome flavor and beautiful color. And to add our own twist, we decided to throw in some mint leaves, which we muddled at the bottom of the glass with our lime.

If you don’t have a muddler, try using a mortar and pestle. If you don’t have one of those, simply squish the mint leaves and lime together using the bottom of a fork. Press the fork against the leaves and twist. Muddling is not about crushing the leaves the point of not recognizing them. You are simply looking to break them down enough to release their oils and essence. Here’s a good technique.

We made four Raspberry Lime Rickeys for brunch with a shot of gin in each. Of course, you can make these as strong or as weak as you want. You can add vodka or even rum if that’s your preferred liquor. We went the traditional route, but it can be tailored to your tastes!
