This low carb Sex in the Driveway Cocktail is the same beautiful blue as the high carb version but there are no carbs to deal with. Fruity flavor and strong kick make this blue vodka cocktail a summertime favorite.
For this recipe you’ll need: vodka, peach vodka, blueberry lemonade water enhancer, white cherry water enhancer, Diet Sprite, and crushed ice.

Last week I was mixing Memorial Day cocktails for Restless Chipotle readers and as I was pouring out cocktail after cocktail because of the carbs I wondered if there was a way to make Sex in the Driveway a low carb drink.
Of course there was.
It took awhile to get it right but I was more than happy to test them for you. It’s a sacrifice that is just part of my job. Vodka and peach vodka are stirred together with blueberry lemonade and white cherry water enhancers. If you want it to be a good blue color you’re going to need some blue gel food color, too. When the Diet Sprite is added you have a fizzy, fruity cocktail that is the color of a summer sky… or a stormy sky, it kind of depends on how much food coloring you put in.
While alcohol usually doesn’t have any carbs it does contain calories and it does tend to stop the fat burning process because you body prefers to burn the easier stuff — alcohol. Because of that cocktails should really be a treat and not something you imbibe on a regular basis. I like to save my consumption for Saturdays when I try to take time off and just relax. So, yes this is low carb but be aware that it could stall you if you are trying to lose weight.
Sex in the Driveway is a colorful twist on the Sex on the Beach cocktail. I promise you I do not know where they come up with these names. I am not sure that I could walk into a bar and ask for Sex in the Driveway… at least not without giggling like a 12 year old.
