Looking for Low-Carb & Keto (Christmas) Cocktails ... here are four !

I recently saw this post on Mark’s Daily Apple site, he writes: "It’s holiday party season, and no one wants to be left out of the celebration. Whether you’re eating Primal, paleo, general low-carb or even keto, there’s no reason to relegate yourself to club soda when you’d rather be enjoying something more… festive. Today we’ve got four delicious takes on classic cocktail recipes for your holiday."

Low-Carb Holiday Sangria

The above words and pictures taken from original article here 

Libby at Ditch The Carbs Site has a very good post about the number of carbs in alcohol, which readers may wish to read. She says "this is my ultimate guide to carbs in alcohol – the good, the bad and the ugly. You can still enjoy alcohol when living low carb, but by making better choices and in moderation. Alcohol can be a tonic or toxic – it depends on how much and how often."




Please go across to Libby's site to see and read more, use this link here 

Readers - you will find a variety of recipe ideas within this blog. It is important to note, not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

As always thanks for reading.

All the best Jan

I'm not very adventurous with drinks, perhaps I'll give some of these a try.

They do look good. And, if only our weather was right for it, I do love a mulled wine (and haven't had it in years).

I'll have to pass these recipes on to a friend of mine who is on the Keto diet. She'll appreciate them, I'm sure...particularly with the Festive Season just around the corner.

These sound and look delicious. I love mixed drinks but they don't sit well with me. I will stick to the low carb red wine. :)
