3 glasses of spiced apple cider spritzer

We can’t get enough warm fall flavors. Fall is truly our favorite season, and it’s so fleeting here in the Midwest, so we try to take full advantage of it! Truthfully this low carb spiced apple spritzer is great from the second September hits, until New Year’s Eve. We love the longevity of the flavors found in this drink, so you can be festive for a large portion of the year!

You might have noticed that we have quite the affinity for our homemade sugar free keto grenadine recipe! You can find it in many of our cocktail recipes, like this low carb apple cider bourbon cocktail (you can find our homemade apple cider recipe in that drink too). Other great drinks you can find our keto grenadine in are this spooky purple people eater drink (a low carb gin cocktail), this pomegranate and ginger gin bennett and this low carb fall harvest bourbon whiskey sangria!

Is Spiced Rum Keto?

Honestly, this is a hard question to answer, since keto is a metabolic state. Keto isn’t a food! Ketosis is basically the absence of carbs and sugars, and using fat for fuel in your body. While some foods are higher in carbs and sugar than others, we pretty much believe in eating what you want to an extent. When you’re first starting out with a low carb lifestyle, it might be easier to limit some things, but in time, we have found that moderation for us is key.

Now, onto the rum. Alcohol in general can be known to kick people out of ketosis, because alcohol will be used for fuel before any other food source. After alcohol, your body will turn to carbs for fuel, and then lastly, fat burning! Basically, on nights of heavier drinking, your body is running off of alcohol before anything else. When you add extra sugars and carbs to the mix with your alcohol, things can get a little tricky. Many spiced rums have tons of extra sugar. Not Bacardi spiced rum though! It has only 0.5 grams of sugar and 0.5 carbs per every 1.5 ounce serving. Not bad at all! That’s why we chose it for this apple spritzer cocktail. It has a lovely warming and smoky flavor.

What Prosecco is Best For This Apple Spritzer?

Prosecco in general is one of our favorite alcoholic beverages, with it’s crisp and refreshing flavor. Our favorite prosecco brand is Mionetto! They craft high quality (D.O.C. certified) sparkling wines for a very reasonable price-point. We thought their standard Trevisio Brut Prosecco was perfect for this apple spritzer, since it’s dry and low in carbs, but is very fruity in flavor with a good hint of golden apples. It’s very well balanced and light, making it the perfect base for sparkling cocktails. We love Mionetto’s dry yet flavorful wines. We made a delicious low carb rosé ginger paloma over the summer, if you’re in the mood for another sparkling wine based cocktail!

Can I Make These Apple Spritzers Ahead of Time?

We wouldn’t recommend making these too far in advance, because the prosecco in this spritzer will fall flat. To make a larger batch, you could mix together the apple cider, the spiced rum and the keto grenadine and store it in the fridge. Right before serving, pour in a bottle of chilled prosecco and you have a larger batch ready to go so you don’t have to spend the whole night mixing and pouring. We will say though, this drink comes together in one glass without a shaker or ice, so there isn’t much to it! All you need to make it is a bar spoon to stir the ingredients together.

Is this Apple Spritzer Keto Friendly?

Alcohol can be a little tricky with ketosis, since your body burns off alcohol before it burns off carbs or fat, like we mentioned above. We will provide a more detailed breakdown of the nutrition facts of this drink below, but overall, this drink is only 6 net carbs per glass. We think that’s pretty low carb and keto friendly! Each person is different though and how their body reacts to alcohol, and it does depend on the brands you use. We don’t like to guarantee anything, but we do hope we can guide you in the right direction of a healthier cocktail that will be fun and festive for the holidays.
