We have been learning a variety of low carb recipes, from breakfast, snacks, and even desserts. How about some low carb drinks. Treat yourself or your friends to these refreshing and healthy drinks. Here is a selection of my best low carb drinks.
Best Low Carb Drinks
1) Blood and Sand Cocktail: Low Carb Scotch Cocktail
Easy, low calorie, and 0 carbs – you can’t ask for more from this Blood and Sand Cocktail! Adapted from the original this low carb version has flavors of orange, cherry, and Scotch tanged up with a squeeze of lime and a zip of ginger ale. The original Scotch Cocktail has about 10 carbs per serving for about 3 ounces of cocktail – those 10 carbs could really add up quickly at a party! Keep in mind that while clear alcohol like Scotch has no carbs your body won’t burn fat while you have alcohol in your system. Of course . . .

4) Frozen Cherry Limeade Margarita – And It’s Low Carb!
This Frozen Cherry Limeade margarita is fruity and refreshing just like any other frozen cocktail but this one has just 0.5 carbs per serving. C’mon, y’all. 0.5!
I love fruity cocktails — which is a definite no-no on low carb. I have been experimenting with sugar free water enhancers like Mio and I find that they work really well! I then add some diet 7-up or club soda to make up the difference in the liquid. Not all of them have been raging successes… yet… but this one certainly is!

5) Low Carb Daiquiri
Once you are beyond the induction stage of Atkins or other low-carb eating plan you are free to have a cocktail once in awhile. Keep your carbs in check with this Low Carb Daiquiri.
I enjoy ending the day with a cocktail or a glass of wine. I tend to prefer cocktails because there are less carbs to worry about and, if the day has been particularly chaotic, one cocktail can do what it takes two or three glasses of wine to do, if you know what I mean. I am not the world’s most naturally relaxed person . . .
