Raspberry Lime Rickey

Traditional Rickey cocktails are made with gin and bourbon with little to no sugar added to them – sounds like a perfect combo for the keto diet. This version of this popular cocktail is flavored with mint leaves, lime juice, and sugar-free raspberry syrup. The fruity flavors blend perfectly and the raspberry syrup gives this Rickey a lovely red hue.

Decorating the Rickey

A cocktail is never complete without a bit of festive décor. You can add lime wedges to this glass, but we think a couple of raspberries on a toothpick and mint leaves sprinkled on top showcase what this cocktail is all about. Of course, a decorative glass straw can also help make this popular cocktail classic look fancy.
