Keto Tea Party: Green Tea Keto-Jito


FRESH TAKE ON TEA TIME

Who says you can’t have cocktails at a Tea Party? What is a Tea Party anyway if not an excuse to relax and enjoy pretty treats with your friends?

This Green Tea Keto-Jito is one of my favorite things to serve when I get together with my girls. And it is SO EASY and technically it does contain tea;)

Recently I teamed up with the ladies at Boozy Ketones on Instagram to turn my keto-chata recipe into cocktails. I love that the Boozy Ketones Sisters have dedicated their feed to Keto Cocktails with under 5 grams of Carbs. (And the pictures on their Instagram are stunning!)

We started with my Keto-Chata recipe from The Big Book of Keto and added booze. I love Horchata in the winter time, oddly enough. It is served cold, but the mix of Cinnamon and Vanilla just taste cozy to me.

The Boozy Ketones also shared their Apple Pie Moscow Mule Recipe and their tips to making the perfect Keto Margarita.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 oz infused apple pie vodka

  • 1/4 fresh lemon

  • diet ginger beer (Cock n Bull gingerbeer is a favorite).


Fill cup with ice. Add vodka, lemon juice, and ginger beer (We also like to do 1/2 ginger beer 1/2 club soda if we want it more mellow).

To make the apple pie vodka:

Put slices of 1 apple and two cinnamon sticks in a pint sized mason jar, cover with vodka. Let sit for 3 days then strain. All the flavor without all the carbs!
