Is Vodka Keto-Friendly?

Vodka is keto in limited amounts. This beverage has a standard alcohol concentration of 40% ABV and 0 net carbs. It’s better to enjoy vodka dry, but you can mix it with sugar-free tonic water, sparkling water, or soda water.

Keto if Limited

  • Vodka, versatile alcohol originally from Russia and Poland, is made by distilling potatoes and grains.
  • While classic cocktails and beer are a no-no in keto, you can consume hard alcohol such as vodka in moderation.
  • If you’re on keto for weight loss, remember that even though vodka is keto-friendly and has 0 net carbs, it still contains many calories. 
  • There is 58 kcal in 1 oz of vodka and 87 kcal in a shot of vodka.
  • Vodka can also trigger cravings and increase your appetite, especially for carb-loaded dishes.
  • While on keto, alcohol gets processed slower because there isn’t much glucose in the blood to digest. Hence why you’ll get tipsy and drunk easier and have worse hangovers.


  • Alcohol is not necessarily healthy, but you can still enjoy it from time to time. But be cautious about controlling the portions.
  • Vodka can be drunk straight or combined with low-carb mixers for more flavor. 
  • Mixing vodka with diet soda is a dirty keto drink due to the many sweeteners and artificial additives that soda has.
  • When you drink vodka, your body uses alcohol for energy instead of fat. This means that constant vodka consumption will stall your weight loss journey and ketosis process.
  • However, if you want to have a drink, from time to time, vodka is a better choice than wine, beer, or cocktails.
  • Have one oz of vodka with soda water (not tonic!) or sparkling water for a carb-free drink.
