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 + ½ 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 + ½ part vodka + ½ 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 ½ cup of alcohol and 1 ½ 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:
64 calories and 0 net carbs

I am SO excited about this! I am so useless when it comes to making drinks, which is why I buy them so often. This would save me SO much money! Pinned to try later! 🙂
I’m a big fan of both drinks and having these citrus syrups really makes it all so much easier! Love this cocktail ideas!

What a great idea! I hadn’t thought of using Torani for bases in drinks. So yummy! I’m already thinking of all the variations I can come up with. Love the no-calorie.
My husband also is a huge football fan so I’m always looking for new things to serve for football gatherings and these drinks will be perfect for the next game day.
those are some awesome drink ideas for tailgating or for get-togethers. Thanks for all the delicious beverage ideas, I’ll be sure to toast you when I share them with my friends!
What a great tailgating idea here. I am a fan of margarita and having some choices here in your list is a treat – and low carb too. Gotta do this quickly!
You have just opened my eyes! Margaritas are my absolute favourite, but I love a lot of lime flavour and won’t buy lime juice because of all of the sugar. I had no idea I could buy it sugar free! Thanks for sharing, I can’t wait to have a margarita – guilt free!
I had never hear of Torani syrups, but I just added it to the weekend shopping list. I hate adding a whole bunch of sugar to cocktails so I usually stick to making drinks that aren’t supposed to be sweet. But, often, when we have guests for dinner, I like to offer at least one cocktail that’s on the sweet side. This is perfect!
So glad you found out about Torani. I really love them.
I want to come to your tailgate parties!! I would gladly imbibe both of these cocktails! They look delicious and easy to make!
Haha thanks so much Elaine!
Margarita is my summer drink of choice. And it’s such a great bonus that this recipe is low carb! More drinks for me 🙂
They do go down easy!
Awesome and yummy flavors. I love everything to it. Makes my day really special.

We have a bbq party this weekend. I know my guests would love helping themselves to these drinks. Sounds like a plan to me.
Wow! These drinks look sooo refreshing! Perfect for the football season! Thanks for sharing! I really love your ideas.
We love Torani syrups! I use the mint one a lot but never tried these sugar free ones. These ideas look bomb!!! Will definitely be trying soon – thank you for sharing!! xx
HI Aline, I have the sugar free mint one (I have so many!) and like that for coffee and smoothie drinks. Hope you give these a chance!
I love all these ideas! I’m a big tailgater, and it’s not the same without a drink in hand, so I’ll definitely work my way through this list. Thanks for sharing!
You are welcome and I hope you give one of them a try!
