What I Love About This Keto Martini Recipe
This sweet and decadent keto martini is so good, you’ll totally forget it’s low carb. Plus:
- It’s so easy to make – children could do it! (But, to be clear, they shouldn’t…)
- The ingredients are easy to keep on hand, so you can make one whenever you crave it!
- It takes roughly 30 seconds, so it’s perfect for throwing together before the next Netflix season loads.
This keto martini is a breeze to make, (and super easy to drink, so watch out!).
Vanilla Vodka – You don’t need much vodka for this recipe, so you’ll have a lot left over. Store your bottle upright, and somewhere with a consistent temperature so that the quality will last until the next time you’re making cocktails!
Cocoa Powder – The cocoa powder you choose can make or break this chocolatey drink. Get a good dutch-processed one for the best fudgy flavor.
Chocolate Shavings – Use a vegetable peeler along the edge of a slightly warm baking chocolate bar for perfect chocolate curls!
Tools To Make
For this low carb Martini, you’ll need a cocktail shaker and strainer if you want it taste the James Bond way. Don’t have one? Use my cheat – try a mason jar! Cut some holes in an extra lid to strain. Aren’t they great for just everything?!
This low carb martini is best enjoyed right away. Wait too long, and the ingredients will separate and you’ll have to pour it out, which makes me cry just thinking about! The ingredients are super great for keeping on hand and making them on demand.
Keto Martini Recipe Variations
This low carb martini is incredibly delicious as is, but if you’re craving something a little different, you may want to try:
How Can I Make This Citrus?
There are so many ways to make low carb cocktails with citrus…
When I have some ripe oranges or tangerines on hand, I immediately know it’s time for a keto old fashioned. And when I have limes, I break out my juicer and make a kicky low carb margarita!
Can I Make This With Coffee?
In the mood for something with a little caffeine kick? I love to take some cold brew coffee and make myself a keto White Russian!
How Can I Make This Creamier?
This low carb martini is a creamy, chocolatey daydream, but if you want something even creamier, try Keto Eggnog! It’s perfect for the holidays, or anytime I’m craving that spicy, nostalgic flavor!
Can I Turn This Into A Warm Cocktail?
Usually we think of cocktails as cold drinks, but they can be a whole range of temperatures, ( I see you, Irish Coffee!).
Turn this into a warm drink (think keto hot chocolate with a little extra something…) by heating all the ingredients (except the vodka) in a saucepan. Pour your cocktail into a mug, along with the vodka, and give it all one good stir.
Can I Add Fruit?
This low carb martini is the perfect drink for all sorts of fun events, and it tastes absolutely delicious with a few muddled strawberries or raspberries.

Fans Also Made These Low Carb Recipes:
- Chocolate. I love Lily's chocolate chips for this (they make dark, semi-sweet, and milk) but you can always make your own low carb chocolate by following my recipe!
- Cocoa Powder. I much prefer dutch process cocoa powder in sweets, as it’s significantly less bitter than regular!
- Lakanto, Swerve, or Erythritol. I stick to Lakanto and Swerve which are a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar. If using a different brand of Erythritol, keep in mind it's 70% as sweet as sugar, so you may need to add more to taste.
- Milk. I swap between unsweetened light almond or coconut milk.
- I use 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder to cut down on carbs, feel free to add more if you’d like to bump up the chocolatiness of your cocktail!
