What is best when on a Keto Diet?
Drinking wine and alcohol on keto is fine! There are plenty of low carb alcohols and wines that are keto-friendly, and most are 0 carbs per serving. Really, it's the mixers you need to watch out for.
Traditional margaritas, mojitos, craft beers, and Moscato can have upwards of 30 carbs per drink! It's pretty easy to keto-fy these at home, where you have complete control. At a restaurant where you only have the good faith of your server, it can be tricky. You can order vodka or tequila with soda water or diet tonic when you're in a pinch for zero carbs. Boring, but fine. Dirty gin martinis with some olives are 1 carb and are delicious (and come with a snack!). You can keep stevia or monk fruit drops in your purse, ask the bartender to leave out the simple syrup, and take the sweetening into your own hands. If you are looking to drink wine, stick to the dry versions listed in the Keto Alcohol Guide. Reds, whites, Brut and Extra Brut rose' and sparkling wines are around 2-5 carbs per 5 oz. Resiling, Moscato, sweet reds, and liqueurs are all very high in sugar. Leave em and avoid a headache of regret.
