Summer means sangria around here. It is cheaper than serving straight wine at parties and I like keto sangria so much better. This Easy Sangria Recipe is so flavorful and has only 5 net carbs per glass. My low carb sangria is so good they'll never know it's not full of juice and sugar.
Nothing says summer to me like a big glass of sangria! It is more refreshing than straight wine and you can flavor it in so many ways!
If you've never made homemade sangria before it is very easy. You just stretch a bottle of wine with juice, tea, seltzer, or any other liquid and flavor it. I use tea and sugar-free sweetener in my keto sangria to keep the carb count down.
Expert Tips for Keto Sangria
My secret ingredient is using a raspberry tea bag and a sprig of fresh rosemary or thyme. The herbs really enhance the flavors of the wine and the berries. This is a sweet sangria and goes well with almost anything.
My standard sangria recipe is 1 part pinot grigio to one part apple juice. It is very delicious but not low carb. I wanted to make a version that would be friendlier to my diet. Raspberries are one of my favorite berries and since they are naturally low in sugar they are great for low carb recipes. The only carbs in this are from the wine and raspberries. Using raspberry tea as part of the base means this has fewer carbs and sugar than straight wine.
