A virgin, keto cocktail for sunbathing, afternoon keto barbecues or late night bonfires. Crushed fresh strawberries with fresh lemon juice, basil leaves and mineral water.
My cousin, sister and I met in the city last week for a keto dinner and; because of the smoldering heat, we decided that keto (virgin) cocktails were definitely in order. I was excited to try theirs, mixing and matching like we usually do, but we each chose the same one! I don’t blame us, really. Who can say no to a combination of strawberries, lemonade and basil? Not we three!
The keto drink was so good that I decided to share it with you today, with a couple of tweaks to transform this summer-infused, alcohol-free keto cocktail into a sugar-free drink that everybody can enjoy.
There aren’t too many keto cocktails out there, actually. You could use a sweetener here if you like, but I chose to go completely sugar-free (and sweetener-free), and keto. The strawberries do a fine job of adding flavor. And, if you soak the basil leaves in the mineral water for a couple of hours before serving, you’ll be ace. It’s like a strawberry Italian soda without the sugar and 100% pure keto goodness. Natural Italian soda at its finest, if you ask me.
And video transcriptions! Before you go making keto cocktails and soaking up the sun, I wanted to tell you that as of this week, the keto videos on the blog have been transcribed. All transcriptions are located at the bottom of the corresponding keto blog post for all past and future keto videos.
