I have been diligently reducing my carb intake using the Keto Diet over the last few months. Lately, I have been looking for low carb cocktails to drink when I go out with my friends. I saw White Claw at the grand opening party the other day and was wondering – Is White Claw Keto?
On my low carb diet, I have lost 14 pounds so far which is wonderful, but I have a long way to go. My goal is to lose about 50 lbs. It is not an easy feet juggling working 50 + hours per week, having a 1st grader to do homework with and play with, and spending time with family and friends on the weekend.
I feel like there are so many hidden calories that come out on the weekends when I am spending time with family and friends. Everyone is cooking high-calorie meals and pouring high-calorie drinks.
I have started bringing low carb food and drinks so that I can control what is going into my body. I bring this cauliflower mac and cheese to fill up on while I am at parties. Of course, I bring enough for everyone so that I am not excluding anyone who wants to cut calories too.
Low Carb Cocktails
I also bring my low carb drinks to the weekend parties so that I know how many calories I am drinking. I found a low carb cocktail that is easy to bring with me to parties. It is called White Claw Hard Seltzer.
White Claw is like drinking sparking water. It is 100% natural, low carb and gluten free sparkling seltzer water with 5% alcohol. It is like drink just a hint of fruit. White Claw is a great alternative drinking low carb cocktails like vodka sodas that have zero carbs, but are very strong.
With a White Claw, you get a bit of fruit flavoring and the gluten free alcohol flavor is masked by the fruit blend of seltzer water. It’s awesome!

How Many White Claws to Get Drunk?
This is obviously based on tolerance. The alcohol content is 5% alc/vol. Beer contains between 4-7% ABV, with the average being 5%.
The standard serving size of beer is the same a White Claw. You can determine how many White Claws you can have based on how many beers you drink. Please drink responsibly!
If you don’t drink beer, you can determine based on your favorite wine. A standard serving of wine is 5 ounces and white wine generally is on average 10% ABV. However, it can range from as little as 5% to as much as 14%.
Moscato white wines have 5-7%, pinot grigio wines may contain 12-13% alcohol, and chardonnay may have 13-14.5%.
