This low carb holiday raspberry mimosa is the perfect drink to sip on Christmas morning or New Year’s eve. Lightly sweet and easy to make, you will want to drink them all year round.
Recently I learned that wine and champagne are relatively low in carbs. I was excited because up until now I have only been drinking tequila and vodka. I thought wine was a no no but dry wine is only about 2g of carbs per glass and champagne is only 1g. So I’ve been drinking champagne more regularly and decide to make this low carb holiday raspberry mimosa. I picture me drinking it Christmas morning whilst the young ones tear away at their presents. Because it’s low carb, I can even have two but any more than that and there will be no Christmas dinner. 😉
Ingredients for a low carb mimosa
So there are 4 ingredients in this recipe: brut or dry champagne, fresh raspberries, sugar free raspberry syrup and raspberry tea. I originally wanted to make this with cranberries but I had a hard time finding cranberry tea. However there are many raspberry teas, so time for some raspberry mimosas!
Let’s make our raspberry mimosas
To make these you start by brewing strong tea. Depending on how many mimosas you want to make, use double the bags and let it cool in the refrigerator. Then when you are ready to drink, just add a few raspberries, half tea and half champagne. Finish it off with sugar free raspberry syrup. Of course I use Torani but if you don’t have any raspberry syrup you can just use your sweetener of choice. I also used Celestial’s raspberry zinger tea because they have hibiscus flowers that give it a bit of tartness and that goes great with the syrup.
This is another example of all the great things you can do with tea on a diet. I made a winter sangria awhile ago with Steeped tea that was delicious. Both that recipe and this recipe are a good way to lighten up an alcoholic drinks. You can check out the sangria recipe on my Facebook page. I’ve also used tea in soups, cookies and popsicles.

By the way to learn more about low carb and keto alcohol choices check out this article from the Diet Doctor. I hope you like this as much as I did. I’ve been drinking it a lot lately on the weekends. And by the way I found this champagne sealer on Amazon and I love because I can keep a bottle in the fridge and it won’t lose it’s fizz. The nutritional information for 1 glass is:
61 cals / 0.1g fat / 3.1g carbs / 1.1g fiber / 0.2g protein = 2.0g net carbs
And for a light and delicious dessert, try this keto mixed berries and cream recipe from my friend Trina. Would go perfect with this!
