Keto Alcoholic Drinks
Can you drink alcohol whilst on a keto diet? This is something we’re asked more than you might think.
A keto diet is essentially a very low carb, high fat diet (sort of like the Atkins diet… but for millennials).
This low carb diet puts your body into a metabolic state known as ‘ketosis’ – which means your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain.
All great stuff right? But back to the serious question – what are the best alcoholic keto drinks?
In the end it all comes down to the carb content, with some choices being better than others. Wine, for example, has a much lower carb content than beer, whereas pure spirits (neat vodka, whisky etc.) have zero carbs.
While there are no prescribed ‘keto alcoholic drinks’ out there, it pays to keep an eye open – with even the humble gin & tonic having up to 14 grams of carb per serving. But the worst offenders are definitely alcopops and pre-mixed cocktails, with their long list of additives bumping up the carb and sugar content considerably.
This is where Long Shot may be able to help – with all our drinks containing 2-2.5g of carbohydrate per can (coming from naturally occurring sugars present in our fruit juices), bringing that keto-friendly option to the drinks table.
We see many of our regular customers coming from the keto community, as people understand that you don’t need to completely write alcohol out of the diet, as long as you’re keeping an otherwise healthy and active lifestyle.
All our Drinks are...
Suitable for Vegans
Because we also watched 'that' Netflix documentary
It turns out most of the beers and wines out there aren’t actually vegan-friendly at all (I know, it was news to us too!) So rather than just ticking the ‘vegan’ box, we wanted to make a great-tasting drink first, which also happens to be suitable for vegans. Check ingredients >
Because that’s cool, right?
A rigorous distillation process for our grain alcohol helps to break down and remove the proteins that trigger any gluten intolerances and allergies. So if you’re simply trying to cut down, or have a more serious issue, you’ve nothing to worry about with our gluten-free hard seltzers. Check ingredients >
Low carbs mean it’s perfect for washing down that avocado & egg salad!
That’s right – it is possible to still enjoy a drink whilst on a keto-diet, you just might need to stay away from the beers. With only 2-2.5g of carbohydrate per can (all of which come from naturally occurring sugars in our fruit juices), Long Shot can bring that keto-friendly option to the drinks table.

So you can have that second cheeseburger after all!
But seriously, why waste all that hard work with the diet when enjoying a drink? We noticed that those couple of drinks can all start to add up and is partly why we created Long Shot – to bring that lighter alternative. And with roughly half the calories of your standard G&T, you can get more of the flavour, with less of the guilt. Check ingredients >
Basically the opposite of those sugary canned cocktails you see everywhere.
We got frustrated by the lack of high-quality ‘lighter’ options out there and weren’t so keen on the teeth-rotting level of sugars we found in most ready-to-drink options we found. So the only sugar you’ll find in our drinks comes from naturally occurring sources in the fruit-juices we use. Check ingredients >
The same kick as your standard journey juice, with less of the guilt
We wanted the individual fruits we use to be the centre of our drinks – and we’re sometimes told it’s hard to taste the alcohol in them – but there’s nothing stopping you topping yours up with a splash of vodka for more of a hit if you fancy! Check ingredients >
