I had been 2 weeks into my keto diet and a friend had invited me over to his villa for a reunion and you know there was liquor, There i realized there are carbs everywhere and most of the drinks here a cannot even drink. It took me a little bit of research but I´ve come up with a list of Keto Friendly Liquor where you will find what drinks is the keto community drinking but also set you up to rapidly recognize what you should and should not drink.
