Keto Simple Syrup

keto simple syrup in a cup As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases Simple syrup is used in many different cocktail recipes. Traditional simple syrup is made by dissolving sugar in water. To make a sugar free simple syrup we use powdered erythritol. My preferred powdered erythritol is by Swerve Sweetie. Add equal parts erythritol and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Let boil for a couple minutes or until the powdered erythritol is disolved. Let cool.

You can make the low carb simple syrup ahead of time. It can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Is Tequila Keto Approved?

keto approved tequila and lime Like the marjority of alcohol spirits, tequila is allowed on the keto diet. In fact, a shot of tequila has ZERO carbs in it! It’s easy to enjoy a skinny margarita or low carb cocktail on the keto diet since most hard alcohol is free of carbohydrates.

The tequila I use in the recipe and the type I like the best is a silver tequila. It is a lot smoother in my opinion.

Keto Margarita on the Rocks or Blended Margarita

cucumber and lime Do you prefer margaritas on the rocks or blended? Either way, you can enjoy the keto cucumber lime margarita. I prefer blended. My favorite blender is by BlendTec. It is high powdered and can quickly pulverize nearly anything.

If you would rather drink a margarita on the rocks, then don’t add the ice to the blender. Pour the blended margarita ingredients over ice.

Salt the Margarita Rim and Other Fun Variations

Many people love a salted rim glass for their margarita. To achieve this, simply run a lime slice around the rim of an empty glass. Flip it upside down over a plate of salt and twist. The salt will stick to the rim of the glass. Pour your keto margarita!

Another variation is to dip the rim of an empty glass into a small plate containing [ChocZero Vanilla Syrup]. This syrup is sugar free too. The vanilla is a delicious addition to this cucumber lime margarita recipe. You can add food coloring to the vanilla syrup to create a fun dripping effect. When you add red food coloring to the ChocZero Vanilla Syrup, it makes a fun festive drink for Halloween or Christmas! Call it a Zombie Margarita or a Tipsy Elf.
