My husband loves football season so August makes me think about keto snacks and drinks for parties and tailgates. Today I have for you 2 delicious keto tailgate drinks you can make for your next party: Margarita Punch and Spiked Ice Tea! They only require a few ingredients and I am positive your crowd will love them! And if you prefer non-alcoholic drinks just eliminate the alcohol.
Using Torani Sugar Free Syrups for Drinks
If you follow my blog you know that I love using Torani sugar free syrups in many coffee, tea and alcoholic drink recipes. They have over 30 sugar free syrups and I personally have at least 20 in my pantry. I even use them in desserts like this keto raspberry no bake cheesecake.
Where to find Torani syrups
You can usually find their products in a local grocery store or coffee house but if you are not sure, click here to find the nearest retailer. I usually buy mine on their website because they have the best selection and lots of recipes to try.
Tip for making low carb drinks
Whether you are having a party or bringing drinks to a tailgate, it’s sometimes hard to find a good low carb drink when socializing. Most hard alcohols do not have any carbs so mixing them with sugar free syrups, flavored seltzers or adding a squeeze of citrus are good ways to keep it low carb.
Now for your keto tailgate drinks!
Low Carb Margarita Punch Ingredients
I really like a good margarita and this punch has all the flavor of a classic one but it’s easy to make in large quantities. Below you can see what I used: Torani sugar free lime syrup, tequila and lime juice. Thanks all you need! The basic ratios I used were:
1 PART TORANI SUGAR FREE LIME SYRUP + 1 PART LIME JUICE + 1/2 PART TEQUILA
Making keto margarita punch
If you are using a large drink container like the one below I like to fill it up with ice and sliced limes. Then in a large pyrex measuring cup add the lime juice, lime syrup and tequila. By the way I like to use lime juice from a bottle you would get at the grocery store not fresh squeezed as it has little to no carbs.
Taste test your mixture before pouring in the drinking container and adjust as necessary. For this drink I like to make it fairly concentrated because the ice will melt and dilute it.
Keto Spiked Iced Tea Ingredients
The ingredients for this tasty drink are: tea, lemon juice, Torani sugar free lemon syrup and vodka. Again I like to use lemon juice from a bottle instead of fresh to make it lower carb. I used a similar ratio:
1 PART Torani Sugar Free lemon Syrup + 1 PART lemon juice + 1/2 part vodka + 1/2 part tea
Making the keto spiked iced tea
Nothing like a thirst quenching drink with both caffeine and alcohol for a tailgate! This is not a Long Island iced tea recipe but rather like an Arnold Palmer. As with the other recipe, I like to fill the pitcher or container with ice first and lemon slices. Then mix the brewed tea, lemon juice, lemon syrup and vodka in a large measuring cup and taste test. Remember about the ice melting and diluting.
Making these drinks in large quantities
The amount of drinks you want to make depends on how many people will be drinking. I ended up using 3 cups of Torani syrup, 3 cups of juice, 1 1/2 cup of alcohol and 1 1/2 cup of water (or tea) to fill the gallon container below.
I would suggest using the same ratios of juice, alcohol and Torani syrup and then add water or tea to your taste preference.
Well I hope you enjoy these keto drink ideas. Even if you don’t have a party or tailgate to go to, they taste great for a summer drink. I often make these drinks non alcoholic to drink on a hot day. Enjoy!
A Note about Calories and Carbs
Because Torani sugar free syrups and bottled lime and lemon juices have 0 calories and 0 carbs the only carbs are coming from the alcohol. So for both drinks the nutritional information for 1 serving:
