Berry Rum Soda


As I mentioned on our Orange Rum Rum Soda post, one of my favorite alcohol spirits to drink during the winter is Rum! 

Something about the sweet taste of this spirit brings a nice warm feeling to me, as if I am laying on a beach chair being tanned by the summer rays!  Usually, I mix Rum with a citrus fruit, but today decided I would try with a berry. 

The berry brought out a little more sweetness than the typical citrus and overall a more fruity profile, which I quite enjoyed!  So next time you are in the mood for more of a fruit forward cocktail, give this simple low-carb/keto drink a try!

This cocktail is keto approved at ~2g per serving, so kick your feet up, relax, and imagine you are somewhere on a beach in Pacific tropics! 

The cocktail offers subtle hints of blueberries accompanied with bubbly rum sweetness.

The ingredients you would need for this recipe would be just Swerve/Monkfruit and carbonated water.  We make our carbonated water with a SodaStream, but you can just use a store-bought one if you prefer. We also recommend the proper cocktail glassware.  You can pick all of these items up at Amazon.

Now, let’s get started!

4) In a the meantime, add 2 ice cubes to cocktail glassware.

5) Use a small strainer to strain blueberry syrup into the cocktail glassware.  Next add the cold SodaStream water (SodaStream tutorial here) through the strainer to help loosen up all the syrup.  Use a spoon to press and extract all the syrup into the cocktail glassware.

6) Add a squeeze of lemon and top off with rum.  Mix well and enjoy!  Note – make sure you stir well as the blueberry syrup tends to sink to the bottom of the glass.
