Trust me, don't skip this ingredient. It pairs so perfectly with the blackberry and fresh mint. It is sure to become a new summertime favorite.
Is alcohol keto?
One of the most common questions I get asked is "Can I have alcohol on a low carb diet?" "Or is alcohol Keto" While I don't believe that the answer to that is one-size-fits-all, I am the type of person that finds success through normalcy, and not limitation. By that I mean, if I can make something I love that might not necessarily be healthy fit into my new lifestyle in a healthier version, I am all for it. I'm all about stretching the template and making things work for me, instead of cutting different foods and beverages out all together. Life doesn't work in black and whites, and neither do it.
There are some days when you just want a refreshing cocktail, and why shouldn't you be able to have it? While navigating alcohol on a keto diet can be tricky, it is not impossible. In fact, I wrote a whole low carb guide to alcohol to help you out with this very thing. However, there are only so many vodka sodas a person can drink without getting completely bored.
