    Keeping an active social schedule while on the keto diet can be a challenge. Choosing a cocktail while trying to stay in ketosis is a balancing act — you can’t just order that top-shelf margarita or strawberry daiquiri while you’re out with friends.

    Luckily, there are keto alcohol recipes that let you have fun without knocking you out of ketosis.

    Alcohol on the Keto Diet: The Basics

    Here’s the rub: Many of the popular alcoholic drinks served in bars, restaurants and at parties — including most beers and mixed drinks — are made with liqueurs that boatloads of sugar and carbohydrates that aren’t part of a keto meal plan. Even more important: Your body breaks down alcohol on the ketogenic diet a lot faster than if you were eating large amounts of carbs every day.

    The whole process starts as soon as you start drinking alcohol, meaning you’ll probably feel it a lot faster than you would otherwise. This can be a good thing (you won’t need to drink as much to feel the buzz) or a bad thing (you drink like you did before keto and get really, really drunk).
