Ingredients needed to make keto champagne margaritas

- Orange Extract: For an added flavor component, orange extract is used. This ingredient pairs perfectly with the fresh citrus and champagne.
- Fresh Lime Juice: Can’t have margaritas without fresh lime juice!
- Silver Tequila: An essential ingredient in margarita recipes, silver tequila is what sets this drink apart from other cocktails!
- Champagne: Bubbly champagne is essential here! And, if you didn’t know, champagne is extremely low in carb content, making it a perfect alcoholic beverage to enjoy every so often when you follow a ketogenic diet.
- Ice Cubes: Doesn’t get much more straightforward than that.
- Fresh Lime: You have to have something to act as a “glue” between the rim of the glass and the salt!
- Coarse Salt: To rim the glass! You can choose to omit this ingredient, but I personally think it’s the BEST part of this cocktail.
Keto Alcohol FAQs
Unsure if you can drink alcohol when following a ketogenic diet? These answers to this commonly asked questions should help you out!
Can I drink alcohol on a keto diet?
You can! Obviously this is a personal choice, but you can drink alcohol and remain in ketosis.
What liquor is lowest in carbs?
Pure forms of liquor, like the tequila used in this recipe, contains 0 grams of carbs.
These liquors, in their pure form, are all carb-free:
Is champagne keto-friendly?
It is! This may surprise you since champagne is often thought to be a sweeter drink, but champagne is actually very low in carbs. Per 5 oz serving, most store-bought brands of brut champagne contain about 1.8 grams of carbs.
What type of champagne has the lowest carb content per serving?
- Brut Nature: This variety of champagne contains the lowest carb content per serving at less than 1 gram per 5 oz glass. It is quite challenging to find in most stores, but if you’re adamant about keeping carb content as low as possible, this is what you will want to use.
- Extra Brut: Per 5 oz serving, most store-bought brands of Extra Brut champagne typically contain about 1 gram of carbs.
- Brut: This is what is used in this recipe as it’s very easy to find Brut champagne at virtually every liquor store and grocery store that sells alcohol. Per 5 oz serving, Brut champagne contains about 1.5-1.8 grams of carbs.
- Extra Dry: This variety of champagne has some sweetness added to it. Per 5 oz serving, it contains about 2-2.5 grams of carbs.
- Dry: Per 5 oz serving, dry champagne contains anywhere from 3-6 grams of carbs.
- Demi-Sec: This type of champagne is recognized as being much sweeter than other types of champagne, and I would not recommend using it in keto champagne cocktails. Per 5 oz serving, this variety contains about 6-8 grams of carbs.
- Doux: With even more carbs per serving than Demi-Sec, this would be another champagne variety that I would skip on. Per 5 oz serving, this champagne contains 8-10 grams of carbs. It’s technically referred to as a “dessert wine,” so that would explain the higher carb content.

Is tequila keto-friendly?
Tequila contains 0 grams of carbs. Since a ketogenic diet is based on you reaching ketosis, tequila would be considered keto-friendly.
Note that while some have a strict list of foods they do and do not consider to “be keto,” keto’s goal is to reach ketosis and is, at its most basic level, a metabolic state, not a list of foods.
Everyone is different, so you will need to decide for yourself if you consider it keto-friendly.
