This Grapefruit and Elder Flower Mimosa is a great keto cocktail!
All About Cocktails:
Many alcoholic drinks and cocktails are full of sugar and empty calories, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the occasional drink – that's keto-fied, of course! The Clean Keto Lifestyle promotes enjoying low-carb alcoholic drinks in moderation so you don't fall out of ketosis. This also means choosing high-quality (and low-carb!) options when you're in a social setting – or making keto drinks yourself, like this keto mimosa!
This grapefruit and elder flower mimosa is sweetened with monk fruit sweetener and a touch of grapefruit juice, so it really lets the tastes of champagne and elder flower come through without adding any carbs or calories.
