Strawberry lemonade just screams summer, doesn’t it? As soon as the leaves are green and it’s over 75 degrees, I always like to have it around. For me, I usually have a jug of water with lemon and strawberries in it, which is refreshing but it’s certainly not lemonade. That’s why I love Everly’s Strawberry Drink Mix (also available caffeinated) because now I can make it just like the real thing—and it really tastes like it!
Since I love to throw BBQ’s in the summer, I wanted to make some fun mixed drinks I can serve but that I can also drink (see my Keto Sangria and Keto “Gelly” Shots), so for this one, I made a spiked strawberry keto lemonade!
Fill a 64oz pitcher with:
- 1 cup strawberries, sliced
- 1 lemon, sliced
- 4 tsp Everly’s Strawberry Lemonade Drink Mix
- Cold water
- 1 cup vodka OR two cans Lemon Truly Sparkling Hard Seltzer
If you don’t eat the strawberries, each 8oz glass is only a fraction of a carb each, and if you do, it’s still less than 1 (there’s 10 net carbs in a cup).
Note: Since alcohol is burned off before fats in your body (just like sugar), I usually don’t overdo my fats while I drink alcohol and know it’ll be a “stall” day. Or, I just enjoy and remind myself that keto isn’t a lifestyle if you aren’t living. Enjoy!
