Smoky Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita – Keto Low Carb Recipe
If you're looking for a keto margarita or keto cocktail, this smoky cucumber jalapeno keto margarita is one of the best. I love a good cocktail on occasion but most mixers are full of sugar. The easiest way to keep your keto cocktails sugar-free is to stick with mixers that are keto-friendly or you can make your own mixers with alternative sweeteners.
It's easy to keep your keto drinks near sugar-free when you have mostly straight alcohols or a dry wine like my favorite, Dry Farm Wines that have less than one gram of sugar in the entire bottle, but what about when you want a mixer?
You can also keep your drinks keto and low calorie with a spirit substitute. I've been using Ritual Zero Proof since 2020 and I love their products. Their nonalcoholic spirits are the closest I've found to the real thing. Most are completely sugar-free as well as calorie-free and of course, alcohol-free. Get 20 percent off at checkout with code HNG20. Their tequila makes a great margarita!
This smoky cucumber jalapeno keto margarita uses mezcal for extra flavor, sparkling water to replace a typical sugary mixer and a couple of drops of stevia for a little sweetness. Enjoy as a pre-dinner cocktail or with our classic pairing of Marinated Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce.
I also love to use ketones for a keto cocktail. They use erythritol as a sweetener, come in a variety of flavors and the electrolytes and ketones make them way less likely to cause a hangover. You can use them whether you eat keto or not!
