Look, the internet is chock full of blog posts telling you how to get ON the Keto diet, but that's not my bag. I'm here to tell you how to get OFF the Keto diet and detox yourself from all that clean living.
What you do is you make this cocktail...and then you drink it.
Sure, there's some lemon juice in there which is unfortunately super healthy. But if you can overlook that you'll see that it also contains plenty of sugar, vodka and of course, limoncello.
Cucumber vodka might also sound healthy as vodka goes, but that's pure shenanigans. I'm positive it's some kind of cucumber flavoring that was developed by a guy in a lab who is trying to figure out how to make vodka 4.2% cheaper to produce.
Fortunately, those ingredients guarantee the sensation of deliciousness that's been absent from your life experience the whole time you've been on the Keto diet.
So pour yourself a tall mug of this delectable drink and if someone asks you what you're doing, tell them you're detoxing from the Keto diet. It will confuse the hell out of them.
