The classic Moscow Mule cocktail is a ginger beer based drink with a splash of vodka and garnished with a wedge of lime or mint. It's not easy to find sugar-free products that are also free of artificial sweeteners so I used my Sugar-Free Ginger Beer. I made it for New Year's and loved it so I thought I should post it just in time for Valentine's Day.
Although sugar-free alcohol drinks and low-carb cocktails will not kick you out of ketosis, alcohol is not recommended for weight loss. Moderate consumption of alcohol is only suitable for weight maintenance. You can read more about the effects of alcohol in this keto FAQ post.
I'd also like to give credit to Mellissa of I Breathe I'm Hungry who posted a low-carb version of this popular cocktail just a few weeks ago.
