In my past life on the sugar, my go-to was always some kind of rum punch. Whenever you visit Florida, I feel like you need to have a rum punch in hand to really kick-off a vacation. Since a traditional rum punch is nowhere near acceptable for keto life, I wanted to come up with my own.
In comes Everly’s Peach Mango drink mix. and Fruit Punch.
To get the authentic mouthfeel of something like a rum punch, I like to blend this with some strawberries before I shake it, for texture, so it’s a little more involved which is why I made this as a bigger batch—for sharing with a friend!
To make this rum punch, add the following to a blender:
- 1 tsp Everly Fruit Punch drink mix
- 1/2 tsp Everly Mango Peach drink mix
- 16 oz cold water
- 1 tsp sugar-free coconut syrup
- 1 tbsp heavy cream (optional, for fat)
- 1/4 cup white rum
- 5 medium strawberries
Then pour into a cocktail shaker and serve over ice (and don’t forget the tiny umbrella!)
If you want to half the liquid and use coconut water, it will be 8 net carbs for a 9oz glass. That seemed like a bit much for authenticity, so you can cut that number down to 2.5 carbs if you use 16oz of cold water instead. The sugar-free coconut syrup gives the coconut flavor.
