A lot of mixed drinks are very high in sugar, making them not keto friendly. However, you can still find a way to have your favorite drinks from time to time with a few easy modifications.
How to make a low-carb dirty shirley:
- 1 jigger shot of vodka
- 12 fluid ounces of lemon or lime flavored seltzer water
- 2 fluid ounces of sugar-free black cherry Torani syrup, or sugar-free strawberry
- 1/2 cup of ice
Simply mix all ingredients in a chilled pint glass and enjoy!
Keep in mind that sucralose (which is what is in most sugar-free syrups) is not recommended on keto if you are trying to heal a sickness, but some still tolerate it in small amounts while still staying in ketosis. For more information see my article on Strict Keto vs Low Carb.
Another great keto alternative is the Be Mixed drinks. Check them out on Amazon here.
