All About Alcohol and Keto
What do keto and alcohol have in common? Your liver.
Your liver is essential for bringing the body into ketosis, and it is the same organ used for alcohol metabolism.
When you consume high-carb alcoholic drinks, you throw your body out of ketosis and force your liver to focus on digesting alcohol instead.

The good news is that there is a way to enjoy a cocktail every once and while and still stay in ketosis.
With a Clean Keto Lifestyle, you can enjoy an occasional alcoholic drink without slowing your ketone production.
They key is opting for low-carb alcohols.
Here is a quick reference guide for drinking on keto.
This keto cocktail recipes uses Ketel One Botanicals Orange and Peach Blossom vodka, which is infused with amazing natural flavors and has zero carbs (aka a great keto-friendly alcohol option).
We love this vodka for its perfectly peach flavor and bold notes of fragrant orange blossoms.
Each botanical essence is individually and naturally obtained through innovative extraction methods and distillation processes for the freshest, cleanest, most crisp taste possible.
Bottom Line: This vodka has the perfect fruity taste without all the added sugar making it great for keto.
Making the Keto Cocktail
Crafting a keto cocktail can be incredibly fun!
For this version, we paired the peach and orange flavors of the Keto One Botanicals vodka with fresh mint leaves and spicy ginger root.
Then we topped it off with some club soda (you can also use sparkling water) and ice.
How to Muddle
We use a muddling technique to gently mash the mint and ginger to release their juices.
This helps the flavors to bind with the alcohol better than simply using them whole.
To muddle, just place the ginger and mint leaves in the bottom of a cocktail shaker or large metal bowl.
Using a wooden cocktail muddler or wooden spoon handle, gently mash the herbs a few times to release their juices. Be careful not to mash them to a pulp.
How to Serve this Keto Cocktail
This recipe makes one serving, but you can easily increase the recipe for a large crowd.
We served ours in a high ball glass with a decorative paper straw.
This also looks great in a wine glass with a mint garnish.
Most importantly – remember to drink responsibly!
