Strawberry Lemonade Keto Whiskey Smash

Strawberry Lemonade Keto Whiskey Smash

A bright and refreshing, keto friendly whiskey based cocktail with all the favorite flavors of fresh strawberries and a slight twang of tasty lemon juice and only handful of net carbs!

Welcome back to another week of the Bon Appeteach “Book Club”, the only book club where I never actually read the book but I do make (low carb) cocktails named after them. #bestbookclubever

This weeks novel is Little Women Whiskey… This weeks cocktail is a fun riff on a classic whiskey smash. 

Strawberry Lemonade Keto Whiskey Smash

A classic whiskey smash usually consists of whiskey, mint, lemon, and simple syrup. I wanted to incorporate some fun flavors for summer and add some fresh strawberries,  because berries and lemon are fairly low in carbs and would pair well with the bourbon.

If you’re worried about the carbs from the sugar, don’t stress! I have the perfect recipe for Homemade Keto Simple Syrup, making this cocktail a sugar free keto friendly way for you to get your drink on.

“Class” Notes:

Shaken, Not Stirred-

This cocktail is so simple and comes together really quickly. I measure out my Keto Simple Syrup and slice two strawberries and combine them in the cocktail shaker.

Squeeze in your fresh lemon juice and gently smash and combine the three ingredients with the muddler. Next, add in your favorite bourbon and toss in some crushed ice.

Shake everything really well until it’s nice and chilled and pour into a rocks glass. You can garnish with a mint sprig and a lemon wheel or sliced strawberry. I got fancy (shocker) and used a pairing knife to cut away a lemon peel to create a little rose (worked well with the four roses…). I simply rolled the lemon peel up and secured it with a drink pick. 

See how I make these fun and easy flower garnishes with this video and post!
