Vodka Mojito: Low Carb & Sugar Free [Recipe]

Ooh, la, la, a vodka mojito recipe! My partner and I don’t get out too often now that we have our littles at home, but we do a weekly date night in after the kiddos go to bed. We play our favorite games and enjoy a couple of keto friendly cocktails. I’m the Scrabble Queen, and he slays Cinelinx. It’s great, I get a little tipsy and boast about the time I won a spelling bee in second grade while he throws back a couple and geeks out on IMDB. It’s not the most glamorous nightlife, but we have a total blast together!

Recently, we started experimenting with new cocktails during our date night. This has been so much fun, he gets all Tom Cruise-y and I get to step out of my beverage choice comfort zone.

(In case you were wondering, alcohol and keto don’t have to be mutually exclusive! Check out the keto diet alcohol guide for more info.)

I’ll admit, it’s been a little tricky coming up with yummy cocktails that fit into a keto diet, but we are totally getting the hang of it! And quite honestly, I think we’ve struck gold with a couple of our concoctions so far. One of my favorites has been the vodka mojito.

There’s a local restaurant stationed on the waterfront nearby with fantastic happy hour specials and even more amazing cocktails. Their vodka mojito is hands down my all time favorite HH special. It’s fresh; it’s delicious, it’s boozy! It’s also packed full of carbs.

We made a low carb version of the drink, and it tastes IDENTICAL! Eureka!

This drink is so incredible; I have a hard time wanting to experiment with other cocktails now. I mean, how can you top perfection?

It’s easy to make, the ingredients are simple, and it only has 2g Net Carbs.

The recipe is straightforward. I promise you don’t have to be a mixologist to pull this one off. You’ll just need vodka, ice, lime juice, fresh mint, Stevia or Erythritol, a little club soda, and a desire to get tipsy. The fresh mint and lime combination is super refreshing, and the Stevia (or Erythritol) sweetens the deal without spoiling your entire diet.

That’s right! You can still enjoy a cocktail without killing your progress on the keto diet! Just be sure to make the right drink choices. A few pointers:

  1. Watch your carbs
  2. Look out for sneaky hidden sugars
  3. Stay hydrated and keep your electrolytes in check
  4. Be aware that you are probably a pretty cheap date now

PSA: Lots of people report that their alcohol tolerance level significantly drops once they are on the keto diet. Be safe and limit yourself to one or two drinks. Don’t go crazy or you’ll risk a hangover from hell!

Update: When I first posted this recipe a couple of years back, I used packets of Splenda thinking they were A-OK for keto. Granulated Splenda has maltodextrin in it, which is basically just sugar and will make your blood sugar skyrocket. Best to stay away from it! I wanted to be sure to update this post with sweeteners that I currently use so you don’t make the same mistakes I do.We’re all in it together! Stevia or Erythritol (or a blend of both) are an excellent choice of sweetener for the keto diet.
