Keto Alcoholic Drink Guide + Recipes

Keto Alcoholic Drink Guide

I receive so many questions on if you can have alcohol while following the keto diet and the answer is YES YOU CAN have alcohol. In fact there are plenty of keto/low carb drink options for anyone’s liking. I created a list of what you can have and drink recipes to choose from.

Just to warn you that if you’ve been in ketosis you will more than likely get drunk faster and it can stall your weight if you drink often. Make sure to drink in moderation while still counting your calories and macros. Enjoy!
