Can You Drink Alcohol On The Keto Diet? – Mashed

According to Healthline, there are several spirits that contain no carbs which makes them suitable for the low-carb keto diet. For example, ½ oz of gin, rum, tequila, vodka, and whiskey all contain zero carbs. The next best choice would be a 12 oz light beer, which has around three grams of carbs, and now, you may even be able to find a zero-carb beer. Red and white wines contain only about three to four grams of carbs per 5 oz glass. The Spruce Eats, however, warns that sweeter wines do tend to have a higher carb content, and can get to as many as 10 grams per 4 oz pour.

What you should avoid on a keto diet, are cocktails that are high in carbs from the use of sodas, syrups, juices, and sweeteners. One 240ml cup of sangria can have 27 grams of carbs whereas a serving of Pina colada can have up to 32! Instead, Healthline recommends making your own cocktails using keto-friendly low-carb mixers. Sugar-free tonic waters, seltzers, and diet sodas all tend to have zero carbs. Mix gin with a sugar-free tonic and you’ll have an alcoholic drink with no carbs at all!

If you are drinking alcohol, Elite Daily says that you should be prepared for the effect of booze to hit you much harder. Because your body is getting its fuel from fat and not carbs, you’ll find your alcohol tolerance to be much lower than usual.
