It’s got just enough sweetness when you use fresh blackberries that are in season, but if they’re not in season they could be a little tart so taste test before you serve to your guests.
You made need to add a few drops of liquid stevia extract to the keto cocktail, but don’t worry adding this won’t increase the carb content of the drink.
This cocktail is fun and fruity! You won’t even believe it only has 2g of total carbs per serving! One of those grams of carbs is fiber too!
