Cool Rummings: A Keto White Russian Recipe

Cool Rummings: A Keto White Russian Recipe

My stance on alcohol in the Bulletproof Diet has always been consistent: It’s not good for you. We know that alcohol causes side effects like hangovers, early aging, and weakened willpower — and science proves that there’s no safe way to drink.[1] Bottom line: If you want to live longer and perform at your best, alcohol is not the best choice.

However, social activities can increase your performance, your focus, and your lifespan. Drinking is a social activity. That’s why I created the Bulletproof alcohol roadmap — it tells you which alcohols to enjoy and how to reduce their harmful effects, so you can have an occasional drink without derailing your health goals.

This keto White Russian is one way to have alcohol while minimizing the damage, thanks to two high-quality ingredients. Distilled rum contains fewer toxins and causes less inflammation than beverages like beer or wine. Measure your rum, then pour over rocks with Mocha Bulletproof Coffee Cold Brew. The Brain Octane Oil in Bulletproof Coffee supports ketone production, which can help protect your body from the inflammatory effects of alcohol. The result? You feel good when you drink this keto White Russian — instead of foggy and hung over.

I shared this recipe on Facebook and Twitter and asked you all to name this cocktail. Shout out to Josh Folmer (@triton916) for giving this Keto White Russian a new name: Cool Rummings!

This keto White Russian is an upgraded spin on a cocktail classic -- all without inflammatory sugar and cream. Just 2 ingredients, and less than 1 net carb.
