Just because you are on a keto diet doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a blended cocktail every now and then.

This keto vodka lemonade recipe has all the elements of a perfect beach cocktail. This sugar-free beverage is slightly sweet, mildly tart and blended to form a fun umbrella drink you should drink poolside during the warm weather season.

This recipe for low carb vodka lemonade is naturally gluten-free and sugar-free and will help get the party started if you are have friends and family over! Make these along with other refreshing keto cocktails, like a low carb margarita, sugar free strawberry daiquiri or a keto mojito.

You can easily turn this into a strawberry vodka lemonade by using sugar-free strawberry lemonade. Or if you are fighting a hang-over the next day, make a charcoal lemonade drink with any leftover keto lemonade you may have.

  • Are lemons keto?

    Yes, you can have lemons on the keto diet! Lemons are a wonderful ingredient to use on the keto diet. They help brighten up a dish when cooking, but they are loaded with flavor if you want to make a lemon based keto dessert or beverage. Lemons have 3.4 grams net carbs in one lemon.

    Is vodka keto friendly?

    Yes, vodka is allowed on the keto diet.

    Vodka, like most keto approved distilled spirits, has zero carbs. So feel free to have a couple of drinks on the keto diet.

    Gluten free vodka

    On the keto diet, most of us try to avoid gluten if possible since it is a common food allergen and can cause inflammation in the body. Luckily, pretty much all vodka is naturally gluten-free – with the exception of some flavored vodkas. There may be some flavored vodka spirits that contain gluten.

    Keto sweeteners for sugar free vodka cocktails

    To make this vodka lemonade cocktail sugar-free we add keto approved sweeteners.

    I recommend using a powdered keto sweetener, especially if you are making the vodka and lemonade over the rocks. The Confectioner’s sweetener dissolved better than the granulated form.

    Any sugar alternative will work in this vodka drink recipe. You can use monk fruit, erythritol or stevia. The two powdered sweeteners that I like to use are Lakanto and Swerve. Swerve measures cup for cup with sugar; however, Lakanto powdered monk fruit is 2x as sweet as sugar, so you will only need to add about 1/4 cup Lakanto powdered monk fruit.

    Blended or on the rocks

    You can enjoy this keto cocktail either blended or on the rocks.

    If you love blended drinks, I recommend investing in high powered blender. This will pulverize your ice to create a smooth slushy cocktail. The blender I use is a BlendTec. But you can use any blender to makes your boozey lemonade slushy.

    To serve over ice, add ice to a cocktail glass. Follow by 2 oz. of vodka and 6 oz. of sugar free lemonade. Stir and enjoy!

    How many carbs in vodka

    Along with many other distilled spirits, vodka is keto friendly. Although vodka is typically made from grain, rye or potatoes there are zero net carbs in vodka.

    So you can enjoy a cocktail or two on the keto diet without risk of going over your carb limit as long as your mixers are low in carbohydrates.

    Vodka is also gluten-free despite being made from wheat products. Some distillers may add flavors to their vodka and this extracts may contain gluten, so buyer beware.
