Hot, humid days call for refreshing summer Keto cocktails.
Especially, enjoyed by our pool 😉
I really love cocktails and I’ve shared a few here on the blog, but since Luke and I are trying to be healthier, and are loosely following the Keto diet, I’m trying to go with low carb alternatives. Keto is no sugar, low carb but you can still have dry wine or spirits on the diet.
My friend Krista is hosting a recipe hop as part of the Simply Summer tour and I thought I’d share a few of our favorite summer Keto cocktails.

The key to these cocktails is a Soda Stream.
We were drinking so much sparkling water and soda water that Luke thought it would be better for the environment if we started making our own sodas and sparkling water. The soda stream uses water and carbonates it by pumping C02 into the water with these. I find our homemade soda water and sparkling waters so much more refreshing than ready bottled varieties and it’s also better for our environment because we have reusable bottles. Our kids also love making their own sodas with syrups sold for soda stream.
Want to make some Keto friendly cocktails? Here are the recipes below.
Refreshing Summer Keto Cocktails
Vodka Soda with Homemade Soda Water
- 1 liter of Water
- Pinch of Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- Fresh Lime
First make homemade soda water. Fill a liter bottle with water and pump the soda stream 5 times. Add 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt to the carbonated water. Put lid on bottle and turn bottle to combine the salt and bicarbonate of soda.
Fill a glass with ice, add 1 part vodka to three parts soda water. Add a lime and serve immediately.
Grown Up Raspberry Lime Rickey
If you’re in the mood for something fruity without being too sweet, this is the drink for you! This drink reminds me of when my dad would take me for Raspberry Lime Rickeys at Brigham’s when I was a little girl. Of course, the ones I drank when I was little didn’t have vodka in them.
- Homemade Raspberry Sparkling Water
- Unsweetened Raspberry Drops
Create sparkling raspberry water with the soda stream. First take a liter of water and carbonate it.
Add 1/2 teaspoon of the unsweetened raspberry drops. Put cover on bottle and rotate bottle to combine.
Add ice to a tall glass. Place 1 part vodka to three parts of homemade raspberry sparkling water.
Squeeze a quarter of a lime in the water and garnish with more lime and fresh raspberries.
We actually enjoyed these cocktails by the pool. I wish I could tell you it was hot and humid but it felt more like fall.
I found the glasses at HomeGoods. They are acrylic as we don’t want glass in the pool area. The teak table is from Signature Hardware.
